Want a Bus to Lynchburg To Catch a Train?

Jeremy Holmes at Roanoke's innovative RIDE Solutions is working with the city's bus company, Valley Metro, and Senator Edwards to try to determine of a connection between Roanoke and Lynchburg's passenger rail station is something people want.

The bus would take train riders to Kemper St. Station until money is available to extend the rail line to Roanoke. This is a popular boarding point for trains to the northeast corridor of the U.S. I'm told the run to New York is a hoot. Below is a link to a Survey Monkey survey you can take.

You can take the survey here.


  1. Thanks for sharing this Dan. This is a very important step to prove that passenger rail directly to Roanoke would be viable.

  2. Jeremy: Hope it works. Good idea. Dan

  3. Great idea! I hope it actually happens...
