Bike Racks

For the convenience of bicyclists, PRTC’s OmniLink, Cross County and Metro Direct buses have been equipped with bike racks.  However, d ue to increased ridership, some Linton Hall Metro Direct trips require the use of MCI coach buses, which do not have bike racks. Each rack holds two bicycles and is easy to use. Bike racks are not available on OmniRide commuter buses. To learn more about how to use the bike racks, download the PDF "Rack-n-Ride" brochure.

Lost and Found

Items found on OmniRide buses will be held at the PRTC Transit Center at 14700 Potomac Mills Road, Woodbridge, VA for 30 days. To inquire about a lost item, please call (888)730-6664, send email to Omni@OmniRide.com or complete our online Lost & Found Form.

Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather, tune into your TV or radio for service bulletins, call (888) 730-6664 or log on to this website for the latest updates. The level of service during inclement weather is dependent on the type and amount of precipitation. See PRTC's Emergency Service Plan for more details.

Emergency Service Plan

In the event of an emergency situation within OmniRide's service area, which disrupts or inhibits serving published stops, buses may operate according to the Emergency Service Plan.
