Downtown Boise isn't a huge place, and getting from Point A to Point B there usually isn't much of a slog. It's when Treefort Music Fest-goers start thinking about points F, G and H that a little pedal power can make those trips feel a little less daunting. This year, Boise GreenBike and Valley Regional Transit say they will make those short commutes a little easier with free rides during the festival, which runs Wednesday-Sunday, March 20-24.

"Sometimes it's hard to get from one end of downtown to the other to see acts on your list," wrote VRT Executive Director Kelli Badesheim in a press release. "We wanted to offer services that support this event in a meaningful and sustainable way."

As part of the service, VRT will run a "Treeline" bus along Main Street between Fourth and 14th streets March 20-23 from 6 p.m.-midnight. This isn't a typical bus line, either: VRT has partnered with several Treefort acts to perform live on the route.

GreenBike has also joined in the program, letting riders take trips up to four hours long for free during the festival, and establishing a "super hub" where riders can park their bikes away from designated station hubs fee-free. Just join the Boise GreenBike network to participate.
