RIDE Solutions and Valley Metro Partner Ad Program

RIDE Solutions in conjunction with Valley Metro is launching a new Partner Ad program for buses in Roanoke, VA. Over the next few weeks, keep your eyes peeled for some new ads on the buses that will highlight community organizations that deserve more attention.

During this initial launch, we worked with 4 local community groups to create ads. Below you can find the ads and some information relating to the partner highlighted.


Roanoke Outside

Roanoke Outside seeks to impact the greater good of the community by organizing or partnering with others to create outdoor-oriented activities and programs that:

  • Educate citizens about benefits of activities such as hiking, biking, climbing and paddling.
  • Encourage environmental stewardship and conservation through recreation.
  • Promote a healthy lifestyle and increased fitness levels through outdoor recreation.
  • Use outdoor activities to raise money for charitable environmental stewardship.


Local Environmental Agriculture Project Inc. (LEAP)

LEAP is a Roanoke-based non-profit organization whose mission is to nurture healthy communities and resilient local food systems. They do this by connecting local farmers, food producers, culinary entrepreneurs and community members to create a relished experience by all. Together, we can LEAP back to the future and (re-)connect community producers to local consumers.


Bikeshare by RIDE Solutions

Ride Solutions provides alternative transportation options – ridesharing (carpooling and vanpooling), biking, public transit, walking, and guaranteed ride home services – to residents living within the greater New River and Roanoke Valleys and Region 2000 regions of southwestern Virginia.  Through our free services we partner with citizens and businesses to connect them with commuting options – beyond the single-occupancy vehicle – to access work and school.


The Peacemakers, Inc.

The mission and vision of Peacemakers, Inc. is to coordinate with all stakeholder in Roanoke, Virginia to bring an end to the senseless violence and murders throughout the City and the surrounding and work towards real systemic change.
