MILWAUKEE COUNTY -- The Milwaukee County Transit System is offering an incentive for commuters to take a bike ride Friday.

It's in celebration of MCTS' "Bike Rack on Buses" program.

So far this year, 106,000 people have put their bikes on the front racks and taken a ride on a bus. That's an increase of 55 percent over the same period last year.

As a thank you to riders, MCTS will give a free ride to anyone who puts his or her bike on the front rack Friday.
