A statement from the Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau, now known as Visit Fort Worth , announced the fare-free rides took effect Thursday.

Visitors and residents using the green trolley-style bus, for the past six months, had to pay $2 per ride or $5 for a daylong pass.

Some riders complained about the end of free rides.
