Why BRITE Is So Important To Us:
“Blue Ridge Community College provides funding to the BRITE Transportation system because it helps ensure students have access to the educational programs that we provide. Reliable, affordable, transportation to campus is necessary for students to improve their lives by gaining job skills and degrees, and helps us fulfill our mission of “meeting the educational needs of the community.””

“The mission of Shenandoah Valley Social Services is “The promotion of self-reliance and protection of citizens through community based services.” By partnering with BRITE, we are validating our mission. BRITE offers a safe, reliable transportation option for those without access to a personal means of transportation. BRITE’s service allows families and individuals to gain and maintain access to employment, education and training, medical and mental health services, retailers for food and clothing, and recreation activities, thus promoting and supporting a self-sufficient and economic independent lifestyle.”
