The measure will apply on all of EMT´s 2,000 buses and 215 bus routes.
Users will still need to tap in with their transport cards or if they dont have one, the driver will issue a free ticket.
Offering free buses has been a popular move over since the initiative started with some 36 free days over the last year – the last one being on 12th December.
The free day offered on Black Friday in November broke the record for the most bus journeys in a day – nearly 3.2 million.
