Discover Transit in June

BRITE Bus and the Afton Express are joining the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) in celebrating transit during the month of June. The “Discover Transit” campaign sponsored by DRPT runs from mid-April to June 2023 and highlights the many public transit options riders have throughout the Commonwealth. Locally, we are proud to promote our very own BRITE Bus system which serves the cities of Staunton and Waynesboro, and Augusta County, with a small footprint in southern Rockingham County and the city of Harrisonburg by way of the Blue Ridge Community College Shuttle. Also in the Staunton, Augusta, and Waynesboro region is the Afton Express – our commuter bus connecting the valley with Charlottesville and Albemarle County via the I-64 corridor.

Discover Transit encourages Virginia residents to return to transit or try transit for the first time. It focuses on the community connection that transit creates. Here in the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro (SAW) region, BRITE Bus connects residents to their most important destinations. With eight different routes, BRITE Bus regularly helps people get to work, essential appointments, and to run errands. In addition to these fixed routes, BRITE also offers ADA Paratransit Service for individuals with disabilities that prevent them from accessing the standard fixed-route bus stops.

BRITE Transit and the Afton Express are running a fare-free promotion on Wednesday, June 21st in celebration of this campaign. In addition to BRITE Bus, there are a number of transit options throughout the CSPDC region. We encourage you to try one of these services during the month of June!
