BRITE Bus Launches New Website

Posted: Updated:

Press Release from the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission:

STAUNTON (August 7, 2018) — BRITE Bus announced the launch of a new website this week, featuring easy access to BRITE Bus information, particularly for mobile phone users.  The site is located at www.britebus.org and includes real-time service alerts, schedules, fares, and information on all public transit services available in the Staunton, Waynesboro, and parts of Augusta County (SAW) region of Virginia. Designed and created by Vada Kelly and her team of professionals at Estland Design in Harrisonburg, VA, the website is user friendly and includes language translation functions. An interactive trip planning option is scheduled to go live in the next few weeks.

BRITE Bus provides fixed-route and ADA compliant Paratransit service in the SAW area. Services are administered by the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission (CSPDC), with operational recommendations provided by the BRITE Transit Advisory Committee. The new website is the latest major improvement to the BRITE Bus Transit System since the CSPDC assumed the administration in 2015. Since that time, BRITE Bus has accepted ownership of the BRITE transit facility in Fishersville; placed a fleet of nine new silver buses and one trolley into service; awarded a contract for transit service provision to Virginia Regional Transit; implemented route improvements; upgraded transit system bus stops, shelters, and signage; and initiated social media accounts to keep BRITE users up-to-date on important transit news.
