Try Transit Week, Sept. 18-22

Loudoun County Transit encourages everyone to pledge to try a form of transit during Virginia's "Try Transit Week" Sept. 18-22. 


"Taking transit is easier than you might think," said Loudoun County Transit and Commuter Services Manager Scott Gross. "Riding a bus is a convenient and economical way to get to where you need to go – whether it's to work, school, a library, or a doctor's appointment." 


Participants who pledge to try transit at are eligible to win a year of free transit service from the Virginia transit operator of their choice, along with a pair of round-trip tickets aboard Amtrak's Northeast Regional train. Pledges will be accepted through September 22, 2017. 


In addition, anyone who lives or works in Loudoun, and who pledges to try transit, is eligible for prizes from Loudoun County Transit. Two winners will each receive a $50 SmarTrip card that can be used on Loudoun County's Premium Commuter buses and most Metro Connection buses. Two additional winners will each receive $20 worth of punch passes for Loudoun County's Local Bus Service.


Loudoun County offers a variety of transit services, including:

  • Premium Commuter Bus Service, which runs from Loudoun County to Rosslyn, the Pentagon, Crystal City & Washington, D.C.; 
  • Metro Connection Bus Service, which provides service from Loudoun County to the Wiehle-Reston East and West Falls Church Metro stations; 
  • Local Bus Service, which provides weekday, and some Saturday, local fixed-route bus service from Purcellville through Leesburg and eastern Loudoun; and 
  • Paratransit Bus Service, which provides service for people with disabilities on the local fixed-routes from Purcellville through Leesburg and eastern Loudoun.

Loudoun County's Commuter Services division also offers commuters help in forming vanpools, carpools and other alternatives to the single-car commute.
