Free Rides on Sept. 20 for Try Transit Week and Car Free Days!


OmniRide will offer free rides on all buses on Friday, September 20, to celebrate Try Transit Week and Car Free Days. These events are designed to encourage people to try public transportation, ridesharing, telework and biking, rather than driving alone.

OmniRide also is participating in Car Free Days, which this year will extend from September 21-23. Visit the OmniRide table at the Manassas Farmer’s Market on Saturday, September 21 and learn more about alternatives to driving alone.
