RALEIGH The fare-free day is part of CAT's effort to encourage an alternate green commute in Raleigh. The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh will also have an Earth Day celebration Saturday.

The event is free from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. rain or shine. Its purpose is to raise awareness of the importance of environmentally responsible living.
