It's Try Transit Week

Loudoun County commuters are encouraged to pledge to try a form of transit during the sixth statewide “Try Transit Week in Virginia,” ongoing this week, September 15-19.

Participants can pledge to try transit, learn more about transit options in their area, and enter to win a one-year transit pass to the Virginia transit operator of their choice at www.trytransitweek.org.

Try Transit Week is a good time to discover new alternatives to your commute and how to get around while saving time, money and energy. In Loudoun County, commuters can take advantage of the Loudoun County Commuter Bus Service, which provides service to Rosslyn, the Pentagon, Crystal City and Washington, D.C.; the Metro Connection Bus Service, which provides service from Loudoun County to the Metro’s Silver Line and Orange Line stations; the Local, Fixed-Route Bus Service, and Paratransit Bus Service.

According to the American Public Transportation Association, the average household spends 18 cents of every dollar on transportation, and 94 percent of that goes to common car expenses. Using transit helps reduce these expenses, such as gas and tune ups, which can save the average family up to $10,000 a year.
