If you pledge to try transit this week you could win tickets to ride Amtrak.

Potomac Rappahannock Transportation Commission’s OmniRide and OmniLink buses will be participating this week as part of Virginia’s third annual Try Transit Week.

Between now and Sept. 24, if you pledge to use transit your name will be put into a drawing for a pair of tickets for use on Amtrak Virginia, which provides service from the state to the Northeast U.S, according to the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation.

Car Free Day Metro D.C. is also offering you the chance to win an Apple iPad if you pledge to eliminate or reduce your driving on Wednesday.

Those who ride OmniRide and OmniLink can also pick up a pledge form at the PRTC Transit Center, at 14700 Potomac Mills Road in Woodbridge.

Both initiatives have sprung up as leaders of area jurisdictions work to convince residents to reduce their dependence on driving their by taking Metro.
