OmniRide summer service change includes lots of bus name changes

From an email: 

OmniRide’s Summer Service Change will take effect on Monday, July 23. New schedule brochures will be available from operators upon request and timetables will be available online starting Monday, July 16.

We recently shared our plans to rebrand our services and you may have already seen hints of our new look and service names. Starting with the July Service Change, we’ll officially be rolling out our new branding! Our new logo and service names will probably seem familiar, but we’re refreshing our look and updating the names to add clarity and better reflect our services.

  • PRTC becomes OmniRide(PRTC will still exist as a multi-jurisdictional public transportation agency, but all of our bus and rideshare services will fall under the OmniRide umbrella name.)
  • OmniRide becomes OmniRide Express.
  • Metro Direct becomes OmniRide Metro Express.
  • OmniLink becomes OmniRide Local.
  • Cross County Connector becomes OmniRide Cross County Connector.
  • OmniMatch becomes OmniRide Ridesharing Service.

The following routes will change; routes not listed below will not change.

  • Dale City-Washington – PM timetable changes; D-103T PM trip extended to serve Dale City Commuter Lot, becomes D-103.
