Try Transit Week: FREE rides offered by OmniRide on all buses to celebrate Virginia’s annual Try Transit Week [#TryTransitWeek #OmniRide #Virginia]

OmniRide will offer FREE rides on all buses on Friday, September 20, 2019 to celebrate Virginia’s annual Try Transit Week – an educational event designed to encourage people to try a bus, commuter rail, ferry or vanpool rather than driving alone.

Try Transit Week is set for September 16-20, 2019 and is sponsored by the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT).

If you pledge to try transit at you are automatically entered for a chance to win a year of FREE transit service from a participating Virginia transit provider as well as a pair of round-trip tickets aboard Virginia’s state-sponsored Amtrak Northeast Regional train.

Other prizes include monthly or weekly passes for transit service in areas throughout Virginia. Pledges will be accepted through September 20, 2019.

“Public transportation is an effective way of mitigating traffic congestion, improving air quality and getting around Virginia. Virginia’s transit services connect the Commonwealth to employment opportunities and make experiences more accessible to the community.”
– Jennifer Mitchell, DRPT Director

OmniRide also is participating in Car Free Days, which this year will extend from September 21-23. Visit the OmniRide table at the Manassas Farmer’s Market on Saturday, September 21, 2019 and learn more about alternatives to driving alone.
