Proposed OmniRide Sunday Service - Public Hearing Scheduled

Posted: 04/04/2022


OmniRide is considering adding Sunday service to our Local and Metro Express routes in Eastern Prince William County. This means that Local Woodbridge/Lake Ridge, Dale City, Dumfries and Route 1 buses, along with the Prince William Metro Express would operate. Sunday service would mimic the Saturday service already in place.

 

A public hearing has been scheduled to discuss the proposed addition of Sunday bus services for eastern Prince William County.

The hearing will be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, 3pm - 7pm at the OmniRide Transit Center: 14700 Potomac Mills Road, Woodbridge, VA  22192. Comments will be accepted during the public hearing or may be emailed to publichearing@omniride.com. Written comments also may be mailed to:

All mailed/emailed comments must be received no later than June 17, 2022 at 12:00 pm.
