The Transform 66 Project is expanding transit and carpool use in the I-66 corridor with the addition of the new park and ride lot in Gainesville at University Boulevard and Route 29 (Lee Highway). About 1,000 spaces opened in October 2019 to support carpool, vanpool, and OmniRide commuter bus service during construction. When complete in 2023, 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 with the Transform 66 Interactive Map.
Commuter bus service is currently available through OmniRide, serving the Pentagon, L’Enfant Plaza, and Navy Yard.
