**Starting Monday, Oct. 28, 2019, OmniRide will operate five commuter bus trips daily serving the Pentagon. Buses depart University Boulevard between 4:56 a.m. and 6:23 a.m.; buses leave the Pentagon between 3:20 p.m. and 5:18 p.m. Half-price fares with a SmarTrip card are $3.45 each way.
The Transform 66 Project is expanding transit and carpool use in the I-66 corridor by adding a new park and ride lot in Gainesville at University Boulevard and Route 29 (Lee Highway). About 1,000 spaces opened on Oct. 7, 2019, to support carpool, vanpool, and OmniRide commuter bus service during construction. When complete in 2022, the lot will include more than 2,000 spaces and offer direct access to the new Express Lanes from ramps at University Boulevard.
Get a closer look at what’s planned through the Transform 66 Interactive Map.
Commuter bus service is currently available through OmniRide, serving the Pentagon. Additional service is planned by early 2020.
