CLEAN COMMUTING OPTIONS
Public Transit - The Greater Lynchburg Transit Company (GLTC) offers convenient routes to serve the entire City of Lynchburg and portions of Amherst, Bedford, and Campbell counties. Altavista Community Tranist Service (ACTS) provides bus service within the Town of Altavista.
Biking – Biking to work provides a healthy physical outlet and clean, inexpensive means to access work. Consider using local streets in combination with local trails to access work or, combine your trip with public transit. Live a long way, put your bike in the car and use one of the “Park & Ride” lots.
Go to Bicycling Resources for bicycle commuting information.
Walking – A great way to get your body and mind sharp and ready for a day at work. If you can’t walk the entire way to work – maybe you can walk to a local bus stop, your co-workers house, or drive to one of our “Park & Ride” locations to have your morning walk.
Carpooling – A great way to save gas, miles on your car, expand parking at or around your place of work, and have a friendly chat with co-worker or friend that works in similar location. You drive today and I’ll drive tomorrow – a win, win for everyone. RIDE Solutions, a free commuter information service, can help you find carpool options or assist in developing programs at your place of work.
