PRTC Celebrates 30th Anniversary

The Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC), Woodbridge, VA, commemorated its 30th anniversary of service with a community celebration Oct. 8 featuring bus excursions, a K-9 demonstration, a food and toiletry donation drive to support area homeless shelters and other events.

“We’re always looking for ways to attract more non-drivers who want the frequency, dependability, safety and comfort our service provides,” said PRTC Interim Executive Director Eric Marx, noting that expansion of the region’s high-occupancy lanes is driving transit growth.Corporate sponsors of the event included Motor Coach Industries (MCI), First Transit Inc., InsideNova, Smartmaps Inc., Trapeze Group, Apollo Video Technology, Gillig Corp. and TransTrack Systems Inc.

MCI announced that the system will take delivery of five new commuter coaches before the end of the year to replace retirement-age equipment on PRTC’s OmniRide express routes to Washington, DC, the Pentagon and surrounding areas.
