Get on the bus

Friday August 27 2010


Students, faculty, and staff can ride the Greater Lynchburg Transit Co. (GLTC) buses throughout the city this semester at no charge with a valid college ID.

For at least one commuter student, this is great news. "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thanks to B.J. Keefer (director of Student Activities) for making this happen! My car broke down three weeks ago and I've been freaking out on how to get to school! (sigh) I love my school," writes Adrienne T. Simms '12 of Lynchburg.

Simms is also quoted in The News & Advance story on the program. This new pilot runs through Dec. 3, and is aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of the campus community during LC's Year of Sustainability.

GLTC will be at check-in and at the Organization Fair in September. Bus schedules are available on line. Route 8 serves Lynchburg College.
