LYNCHBURG, Va. – Through a partnership with the GLTC, around 1,200 Lynchburg City employees can now ride public buses for free.
Leaders said the idea started when the city manager spoke with employees in different departments who were having trouble getting to work.
“With inflation and rising gas prices, this is just one more way that the city can help support its employees and become an employer of choice. We want to make sure they have options in order to get to work, and that they can get to work quickly and safely,” said Carrie Dungan, director of the City of Lynchburg’s communications and public engagement.
Employees must show their ID badge to get fare-free passage on the bus.
