Upper Rogue residents are invited to take a free RVTD bus ride on Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Communters who park and ride etween 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. on that date will get a free bus ride and free coffee by visiting the RVTD table on site.
Park & Ride lots provide free parking for commuters who carpool or ride the bus. The Rogue Valley Transportation District has two lots in White City, one at the north entrance to the VA Dom, and one just north of the bus shelter at Cascade Shopping Center.
RVTD also has a tool to help commuters find carpool partners. The website CarpoolMatchNW.org connects drivers and riders making similar trips. RVTD’s Park & Ride lots provide a meeting place for carpoolers as well as bus riders.
RVTD buses operate Monday through Friday. The Route 60 bus, which connects White City and Medford, runs every half hour. The first southbound departure from Cascade Shopping Center is 5:45am, and the last bus drops off there at 7:00pm every evening. Commuters can learn more at RVTD’s website, www.rvtd.org, or by calling 779-2877.
