Stafford residents will soon have new commuter options to Washington, D.C., thanks to a partnership between Fredericksburg Regional Transit, the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, the Federal Transit Administration and Marine Corps Base Quantico. Starting May 1, 2019, new bus routes are being offered between Aquia Town Center, the north VDOT commuter lot on Route 610/Garrisonville Road and the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) in Quantico, VA. Best of all, riders may try the service for free for May and June.

“One of my constituents asked if these bus routes could be a possibility and I am delighted that we were able to work to make these bus routes a reality,” said Supervisor Jack Cavalier, Griffis-Widewater District. “I am grateful to all our partners for helping us to find ways to give our residents as well as those who commute to Stafford more flexibility.”

Stops on the bus service to/from the Quantico VRE include FRED Stop #36 at Aquia Towne Center, the FRED shelter at the north VDOT commuter lot off Route 610/Garrisonville Road, FRED Stop #502 at the intersection of Garrisonville Road and Acadia Street, Quantico Corporate Center and Marine Corps Base Quantico at the Marsh and Davis buildings.

The new routes will also allow travelers to connect at the VRE station with OmniLink bus service to Prince William County operated by the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC).

Fares are free for May and June 2019. Beginning July 1, 2019, the one-way fare will be $1.75.  Monthly passes will be available for $60.00.  Senior citizens 65 and over, Medicare recipients, and the disabled travel at a half fare or $0.85 per trip. All FRED buses are wheelchair lift equipped.
