It may or may not surprise you that, in the entire Washington Metro area, Frederick County residents are more aware than residents of any other municipality that there is a public bus system available to them. That’s right –Commuter Connections’ 2013 “State of the Commute” survey provided this nugget of information.
How special it is, then, that the TransIT system is celebrating 20 years serving Frederick County this month! “Try TransIT Week” will be held from October 21-25, 2013 with a variety of recognition and promotions for their customers, drivers, staff, and local businesses partners.
Monday, October 21 will be “Customer Appreciation Day,” and each Connector and shuttle rider that day will get a small gift in appreciation of their patronage of the TransIT system. Tuesday and Wednesday, October 22 and 23, will be days to thank the drivers and other employees for their service and dedication. Thursday, October 24 will recognize Frederick County businesses who implement Employer Connections programming to help their employees save time, money, and commuter stress.
Finally, on Friday, October 25, all rides on TransIT Connectors and shuttles will be FREE to all riders, and a Commuter Café will be held at the downtown Transit Center on East Street from 7-9 a.m. Information about commuter options and TransIT’s award-winning services will be available and Key103 will broadcast live.
For those of you who have never tried it, “Try TransIT Week” provides the perfect opportunity to leave your car at home, avoid traffic and parking headaches, and Try TransIT!
