STUART, Fla. — Martin County is offering a free ride Thursday on their public bus system in conjunction with National Dump the Pump Day, which occurs on the third Thursday in June.

On Thursday, all Martin county residents will be able to take advantage of free bus rides and MARTY patrons will receive a discount coupon for Sailfish Splash Waterpark in Stuart.

The park is also hosting the world's largest swimming lesson for free. All participants will receive a 30-minute swim lesson and information about drowning prevention.
