MATTOON -- People in Coles County didn't have to worry about driving Thursday. Dial-a-Ride runs between Mattoon and Charleston. Instead of charging, the bus line offered free rides. It's all part of the National Dump the Pump Day. Local businesses offered gifts to people at each stop. It's the first time it took part in the national event.
