Woodbridge-Lake Ridge OmniLink local bus stops to change on June 4

New routing for the Woodbridge / Lake Ridge OmniLink local bus service will take effect on June 4. This could help area bus riders to more easily reach their destinations. The new routing along Minnieville, Caton Hill and Telegraph roads could make access easier for residents who need to reach the Woodbridge Department of Motor Vehicles, Strayer University, an area dialysis center and shopping destinations including Target. The SkillSource Center, a partner of the Virginia Employment Commission, will be easier to reach too, according to a news release from the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission, PRTC.

Bus schedules are updated each spring and fall to reflect current running times and make other changes such as routing and relocating bus stops as necessary.  This year’s Spring Service Change is scheduled for June 4.

On that date, PRTC also will make changes to the:
• Cross County Connector routing and timetables (connecting eastern Prince William County with the Manassas area);
• OmniLink local bus stops and timetables serving eastern Prince William County;
• OmniRide commuter bus stops and timetables; and
• Prince William Metro Direct timetable in the late evening (linking eastern Prince William County with the Franconia-Springfield Metro station.)

The new routing for the Woodbridge / Lake Ridge OmniLink local bus is designed to make the service more convenient by bringing bus riders closer to the places where they need to go.

Before June 4, the nearest bus stop to the SkillSource Center and Strayer University, both of which are on Minnieville Road, was at Smoketown Plaza.  The DMV and the dialysis center, both located on Caton Hill Road, did not have nearby bus stops. 

The Parkway Crossing West Shopping Center, which features Target, and the Parkway Crossing East Shopping Center across Prince William Parkway near I-95 will also be more easily accessible because of the new Woodbridge / Lake Ridge OmniLink routing. 

“PRTC has had numerous requests to bring the Woodbridge / Lake Ridge OmniLink route closer to the SkillSource Center,” said PRTC Executive Director Al Harf.  “While there are sometimes deserving requests that PRTC cannot accommodate for one reason or another, we routinely try and, in this instance, we were able to do so without a need for additional funding or the imposition of unintended delays for other customers, issues that are frequent stumbling blocks.” 

A ribbon cutting to inaugurate service at the new SkillSource Center bus stop, at 13370 Minnieville Road, is scheduled for 11 a.m. June 4.  The public is invited to attend.

New PRTC schedules will be available online starting Tuesday, May 29.  Passengers also may get a new schedule by asking their bus operator or coming to the PRTC Transit Center in Woodbridge.  For more information about the Spring Service Change, visit or call PRTC’s Customer Service Office at 703-730-6664.
