Need some extra help getting around? Reston Association is hosting an information session on how to ride the bus and Metro.

The event, set for August 16 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., will offer attendees a hands-on learning experience. Participants will ride the Mobile Accessible Travel Training bus and get tips on reading bus schedules, route maps, calculating and paying fares, and other skills.

The bus will then stop at a Silver Line Metro Station, where participants will learn how to determine fares, buy Metrorail fare cards, load SmarTrip cards and read the rail system map.

The event is free. Attendees will meet on the training bus, which will be parked on the southwestern corner of the parking lot of the Reston Association (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive).

    More make-work for overpaid RA staff with nothing better to do?

    Doesn’t the RCC do this?

  • Wasted member fees

    Thats not RAs job, its up to Metro to hold an open house – especially at this time.

    Pls cancel.

  • Tom Mccauley

    The bus and service is a feature of Fairfax County government, aimed to inform and train seniors. RA or Fairfax County, I agree with Wasted member fees—its a METRO responsibility.

  • Wasted votes

    I dont think this offering was approved by the board. This and many others should go before the board. That is why we voted them in!
