Emergency Service for OmniRide Customers

The Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission's OmniRide buses will operate emergency service today after a double shooting outside the PRTC's Woodbridge facility shut the bus lot down, according to a news release.

The PRTC details its emergency service on its web site. Since the organization is borrowing buses from other transit agencies, rides from Metro stations may be longer than usual and buses will likely not say "OmniRide" on them. As to routes:

  • Passengers heading to eastern Prince William are instructed to ride the Metro to the Franconia-Springfield station.
  • Those heading to the Manassas area are instructed to ride to the West Falls Church station.

Vehicles parked at the OmniRide commuter lot in Woodbridge must remain there until a search of the facility is complete.

OmniRide buses will not charge fares this afternoon.
