The RIVAH RIDE

Bay Transit’s Brand New Dedicated Route for Essex County Citizens

Everyone knows they can board a Bay Transit bus to go to many different locations throughout Essex County and connect with other buses to access services in neighboring counties. Now Essex County citizens also have access to a dedicated transit service with a regular route and regular stops and times.

This new service is called, The Rivah Ride, which residents are encouraged to try for free during the entire month of October! Yes, free! The Rivah Ride will operate Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Beginning Monday, November 2, riders will pay a low cost of 50 cents. Free transfers from other Bay Transit buses are available.

The beauty of this type of service is that citizens now have convenient access to bus stops in and around the town of Tappahannock that includes the Riverside Tappahannock Hospital, Mt. Clements offices for medical appointments, Wal-Mart, White Oak Shopping Center, Post Office, Tappahannock Towne Center, Rappahannock Office Building, county offices and other businesses on Prince Street and other locations.

For further information about The Rivah Ride schedule, please call the Bay Transit ride line at 804.250.011 or read about it here.

This service is available to people of all ages and for all reasons. The Rivah Ride – one more way for citizens to access the consumer goods and services they need and one more way Bay Transit benefits economic development in Essex County.

INCIDENT PREVENTION THROUGH TECHNOLOGY

Bay Aging, through its Bay Transit Division provides thousands of rides a year throughout the Northern Neck, Middle Peninsula and beyond. The majority of its passengers are picked up and delivered to their homes in rural parts of the region 12 hours a day, 5 days a week.

As you can imagine, the word “rural” is a key component of the environment in which passenger’s live and the Bay Transit buses must reach each and every one.

To do this, many homeowners have residences that are easy to get to and others, well, not so much. This past winter was filled with ice, snow, lots of rain and it all led to driveways that were muddy, slippery and dangerous.

To keep the passengers, Drivers and buses safe, Drivers must be very aware at all times of road and driveway hazards such as those this winter. To keep Drivers aware, there was an awareness campaign this past winter that, to this date was successful. Driving safely was stressed in the Quarterly Safety Meetings and large posters showing buses stuck in the mud but the most effective warning was notifying Drivers several times a day to be aware of their surroundings. Each bus has an electronic tablet that is used for the driving schedule and Transit Dispatchers in the office are able to send safety messages throughout the day that show up on the tablet reminding Drivers to always be careful and to be safe. This technology is effective, efficient and timely and can be spread throughout the whole service area with a single key stroke!

Each year Bay Transit strives to provide the best and safest transportation in the region through professional Drivers, equipment and technology.
