Bus stations coming

Soon Bay Transit will install bus shelters at the Northern Neck Planning District Commission in Warsaw and at Tappahannock Riverside Hospital. The shelters will showcase Bay Transit branding, be illuminated by solar kits and have seating for the riders who are waiting.

Bay Transit doesn’t have an exact installation date yet, but the units have been delivered and “we’re excited to get them up,” said Michael Norvell, Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for Bay Aging.

“What we’re trying to do is raise the visibility of our program by installing branded bus shelters in hotspots in places where we have a lot of traffic going,” he explained.

Currently, Bay Transit’s service is primarily demand responsive, meaning you call and they come and take you where you need to go. There are two fixed-route systems in Gloucester and one in Tappahannock called the Rivah Ride, which are routes that have designated stops and buses that come at set times.
