Prince William Chamber of Commerce and OmniRide Develop a Transportation Initiative Strengthening Student-Workforce
The Prince William Chamber of Commerce’s Education and Workforce Committee and OmniRide have partnered to develop a transportation initiative geared toward students in the Chamber’s Workforce Development programs. The Education and Workforce Committee builds partnerships intended to enhance the educational experience for students in the Prince William County region by providing a connection between the business community and educators. This is accomplished through work-based learning opportunities. OmniRide has been the Committee’s sponsor since 2019. The transportation initiative is intended to provide transportation resources for students between the ages of 16-24 enrolled in both the Prince William school system and Northern Virginia Community College’s (NOVA) Manassas and Woodbridge campuses.

It also co-sponsors the Virginia Railway Express in partnership with the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission.
