Residents urged to 'Try Transit'

FRONT ROYAL — Valley Connector, a regional shuttle and commuter bus service, will offer a free ride Tuesday to all passengers on Car Free Day as part of Virginia’s second-annual Try Transit Week.

Car Free Day is an international event celebrated annually on Sept. 22 in which people are encouraged to get around without their car — highlighting transit, bicycling, walking and other alternative modes of transportation.

Passengers using the Valley Connector service next week will be able to enter to win a free month’s pass each time they board the bus.

Valley Connector offers weekday bus service from Winchester, Berryville, Woodstock and Front Royal to more than a dozen stops in Northern Virginia and Washington. Each route makes one round-trip per day.

Last year during Try Transit Week, Valley Connector, in conjunction with the Valley Commuter Assistance Program, expanded service to include two weekday routes from the Winchester and Berryville areas.
