Virginia's 2018 Try Transit Week September 17 - 21.

Congratulations to the 2017 Grand Prize Winner Jenny Cox from Verona!

Jenny won a free year of BRITE transit services and a pair of round-trip tickets on Amtrak’s Northeast Regional.

Virginians are trying transit and loving it! You can try it this year during Virginia’s Try Transit Week, September 17-21. Join the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and transportation partners from across the Commonwealth by discovering new transit options.

Using transit is an easy way to get where you need to go. Instead of sitting in traffic, transit keeps you moving. Get a break from gas prices and paying for parking and tolls. You’ll save money and time!
