Free To Ride follows the story of a relentless grassroots coalition from across Dayton, Ohio who overcame a suburban contingent opposed to public transit, and the system of checks and balances that allowed justice and reason to prevail. Amid growing economic inequality, Free To Ride shows that peaceful change is possible and underscores the power of a multi-racial collective to protect the civil rights of all.
