Park and Ride in Virginia


What is a Park and Ride?

Park and Ride lots are available for use when commuting to work or school, or when sightseeing, shopping, running errands, etc.

Park and Ride lots allow commuters, particularly long-distance commuters, to park their vehicles or bikes at a convenient location and then finish their commute using alternative transportation modes – carpool, vanpool, bus, train, bike, or walking.

For information about how to start a carpool, find additional riders, join a vanpool, contact the commuter resource agency near you.
