Rider Spotlight

Each month, PRTC shines a light on one of our passengers to learn why that person chooses to ride public transportation, how long he or she has been using PRTC’s services and what we can do to improve that person’s commute. Check out this month’s Rider Spotlight below.


Ms. Jennings uses Dale City OmniLink, Prince William Metro Direct and Metrorail to travel to her job in Ballston.


Tekeya Jennings

Customer Profile - May 2015



Tekeya Jennings uses two buses and a train five days a week to get from her home in Dale City to her job in Ballston, and PRTC is a big part of that commute.


Ms. Jennings, who has been riding with PRTC off-and-on since 2008, uses the Dale City OmniLink to connect to the Prince William Metro Direct and then catches a Metro train. She makes the reverse trip home, and she said she wishes that PRTC’s buses ran more frequently and could offer service later at night.


In the past, she has used PRTC to travel to and from school in Rosslyn, but these days her trips are generally for work, she said.


As a long-time rider, she said she appreciates traveling with more experienced bus operators, especially those who are able to keep the buses on-time.


When asked what she liked best about PRTC’s services, she replied: “The price because it’s cheaper than the Metro.”
