Beginning Monday, August 5, 2019, BRITE Bus will implement service changes to the 250 Connector route. This route connects Staunton and Waynesboro, serving major destinations including Augusta Health, Wilson Workforce & Rehabilitation Center, Staunton and Waynesboro Walmart stores, Augusta County Library, and Waynesboro Town Center. Changes will include:
- The 250 Connector will access the Staunton Mall from Greenville Avenue, no longer traveling Barterbrook Road.
- The 250 Connector will travel into Statler Square on Saturdays, as it currently does Monday through Friday.
- Valley View Senior Apartments will become a CALL STOP, Monday through Saturday. All persons requiring service are asked to contact BRITE Customer Service at 540-943-9302 at least two (2) hours prior to desired pick-up time. Bus drivers must be notified of requests for drop-off at time of boarding bus.
These service changes are a result of a recently completed study by the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission and a consultant that examined options for improving reliability on the 250 Connector route. The study’s recommended changes will be implemented in phases that will occur over the coming years.
