Bus Riding 101 Workshop

March 28, 2011

March 28, 2011 -- Do you ride the bus often, but have questions about transfers and the SmarTrip card? Or maybe you've never ridden the bus before and would like to learn how to read a schedule and find out which bus to take. Attend this free workshop about riding the bus and get all of your questions answered!

A Metro representative will lead the workshop and talk about:

  • Finding the best route for you
  • How to read a bus schedule
  • The benefits of using the SmarTrip Card
  • Budgeting ideas and how to plan cost effective bus trips
  • How to pay fare on the bus and add money to a SmarTrip Card
  • Free bus transfers and how to use them
  • Discount programs for seniors and persons with disabilities

We will then go for a ride on a Metrobus to a local retailer to learn how to add money to SmarTrip cards and buy Weekly Bus Passes.

Don't miss this informative workshop about riding ART and Metrobus!

Time: 7:00 pm

Where: Gates of Ballston, 4108 N. 4th Street, Arlington VA, 22203
