Park and Ride Facilities

Clean Commuters can explore their multi-modal commute options by driving their bicycle to any of the region’s park-and-rides and riding the rest of the way into work.

In Lynchburg, we’ve made a special arrangement with Liberty University to provide temporary park and ride space for the month of May.
