PRTC GAINESVILLE TO PENTAGON COMMUTER SERVICE
This project includes the implementation of a new commuter bus transit service between Gainesville and the Pentagon and two and a half years of operating costs. The funding request also includes amounts for route marketing, communication, and lease costs for additional park-and-ride facility spaces.
This project benefits toll payers by shifting single-occupancy vehicle trips to transit vehicle trips, thereby reducing congestion on the tolled facility. Since this will be a dynamic-variable toll facility, the reduction in single-occupancy vehicle trips also serves to maintain a lower toll rate for those that choose to pay to use the managed lanes, reducing congestion on I-66 inside the Beltway.
The project is estimated to cost $887,900- 100% of which will be funded by the I-66 Commuter Choice Project.
