The Transportation Department plans, coordinates and implements a multi-modal transportation system for Chesterfield County that allows mobility of people and goods, consistent with the values of the community. The Transportation Department provides service primarily in the form of assistance, information and recommendations on technical and policy issues to the Board of Supervisors, County Administration, the development community and citizens; and manages, coordinates and/or oversees road construction projects to assist in providing an adequate transportation network. Most of the roads in the county are maintained by the Virginia Department of Transportation.
The Sixth Annual Try Transit Week
September 15 - 19, 2014
You have an opportunity to save money on your commute and qualify to win prizes. Participants who pledge to try transit are automatically entered for a chance to win a year of free transit service from the Virginia transit operator of their choice, along with a pair of round-trip tickets aboard Amtrak's Northeast Regional train. Pledges will be accepted through September 19, 2014. Visit TryTransitWeek.org for contest rules and regulations.
To encourage county residents to try transit that week, Chesterfield County, in partnership with RideFinders, a division of GRTC Transit System, and the regional rideshare and transportation demand management agency, is offering all transit riders the opportunity to qualify to receive a $5 Starbucks gift card. To qualify, simply register at RideFinders.com and log at least one bus trip on express routes in the County, including the Chesterfield Express (81X) or Commonwealth 20/Swift Creek Express (82X) during that week. Gift cards are available while supplies last; one gift card per person. Registration is free and easy.
“Riders will find that it’s so easy to register and record their trips that they will log on more than once,” said Von Tisdale, RideFinders’ executive director.
