Try Transit Week

September 7, 2011

September 7, 2011 -- Did you know that U.S. auto-commuters spend an average of 50 hours a year stuck in traffic? Think of all the other things you could be doing with that time instead of sitting in your car! Think of all the money you could save on gas, tolls and car maintenance by getting to work a different way. Skeptical? How about trying transit for a week and see what you think.

The week of September 19 - 23 is Try Transit Week. During that time Virginians are challenged to try transit at least once to get to where they need to go. You could carpool to work, take the metro to dinner or catch a bus to the mall. Using transit is a great way to get wherever you need to go while saving money along the way. You'll also be helping the environment by reducing the amount of harmful emissions in the air.

Pledge to use a form of transit between September 19 - 23 and you will be entered for a chance to win a year's free pass to the transit service of your choice and two free round-trip tickets on Amtrak Virginia.
