Beginning Wednesday, May 1, 2019, and continuing through May 31, 2019, passengers will ride free on Loudoun County Transit buses that provide connections to the Wiehle-Reston East and West Falls Church Metrorail stations.
The free rides will be available on all Loudoun Transit routes that serve Metrorail stations. Bus schedules can be found online at www.loudoun.gov/bus-schedules.
The free bus rides are part of the ISHARE66 Commuter Choice program designed to reduce traffic congestion and promote alternative modes of transportation through the Interstate 66 corridor.
Anyone who currently drives alone to work on I-66 inside the Beltway may be eligible to receive other ISHARE66 commuter incentives by switching to a carpool, vanpool or transit. In addition to the free bus rides, other commuter incentives include:
- $100 gasoline cards for new carpools; cards go to drivers and passengers;
- $500 a month for three months toward expenses for new vanpools; and
- Up to $300 in Smartrip® cards for new Premium Commuter Bus riders.
Details about the incentives are available at ishare66.org.
Anyone interested in exploring better ways to commute to work is encouraged to contact Loudoun County Commuter Services, which provides personalized trip planning for anyone looking to save time, money, or reduce the stress of commuting. More information is online at www.loudoun.gov/commute or by calling 703-771-5665.
