SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — As the Bay Area sees record-breaking heat, you may be looking to cool down somewhere if your house doesn’t have air conditioning.
While the beach and movie theaters are great options, there are also plenty of cooling centers around the Bay.
Bonus if you live in the South Bay — VTA is offering free rides to cooling centers Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Just tell the bus driver or fare inspector that you are on your way to a cooling center and you’ll get a free ride!
