Children Ride OmniRide Buses Free With Adults on April 26 (Sponsored Content)

In support of national Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, children age 17 and younger can ride any OmniRide bus for free on 
Thursday, April 26, when accompanied by a paying adult!

This is an opportunity to introduce students not only to the 
working world, but also to the many alternatives our region has to driving
 alone. Riders are encouraged to bring their children along for the ride on an
OmniRide express bus or OmniRide local bus on April 26 and show them the basics
 about using public transportation so they can gain confidence as they mature
 and start their own careers!

OmniRide express buses are a great way for Prince William 
and Manassas-area commuters to travel to Washington, D.C., the Pentagon, nearby 
Metrorail stations, and various locations in Northern Virginia.

Teens who want to continue using OmniRide local buses this 
summer can take advantage of the Teen Summer Bus Pass, which enables anyone
ages 13-19 to take unlimited rides on local bus services from June 1 through
 September 1, 2018 for just $30. In addition, teens with a Summer Pass can
travel on OmniRide express buses to nearby Metro stations simply by paying the
 difference between the local and express bus fares!

Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is a national public 
education program that aims to connect what children learn at school with the
actual working world. This day provides an opportunity for children to begin to
 envision their future home and work lives. OmniRide looks forward to welcoming
 many new young riders on April 26!
