Commuter bus service expanding

FRONT ROYAL -- The Valley Connector commuter bus service is expanding its operations.

In March, the weekday service, which consists of four buses with more than a dozen stops in and around Washington, will add two more destinations: Dulles Airport and Reston Town Center.

"We are so excited to provide new additional commuter service connecting the Northern Valley to Northern Virginia and Washington ... and all that those cities have to offer," Bruce Coulliette, president of Valley Connector, says in a statement released by the Front Royal-Warren County Economic Development Authority. "We want to provide the ability for people to live where they want to and work where they have to."

Valley Connector picks up riders Monday through Friday in Winchester, Clarke County, Warren County and Shenandoah County.

Coulliette and his colleagues took advantage of the Rural Business Enterprise Loan program, administered locally by the EDA.

"The loan gave us the capital we needed to purchase equipment," he said.

"We have worked with Bruce Coulliette since he began formulating the plan for expansion," said Jennifer R. McDonald, executive director of the EDA. "With 54 percent of our workforce commuting out every day, this is a significant service provision for their convenience."
