Join the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and transportation partners from across the Commonwealth in celebrating the sixth statewide Try Transit Week from September 15-19, 2014! This is a great time to discover new alternatives to your commute and how to get around while saving time, money and energy.
During Try Transit Week, Virginians are invited to try one of the many of transit options available.
Have you had enough of rising gas prices and paying for parking on top of it? When you take public transit, you save money by not stopping at the pump or feeding the meter! You’re not only helping your wallet, you will also be helping the environment by reducing energy consumption and pollution.
Using transit is an easy way to get where you need to go! Instead of sitting in traffic, transit can keep you moving.
When you take the Try Transit Week pledge, you will be entered for a chance to win a year of free transit service of your choice! Need to find transit service in your area? Try the Service Locator.
