Service Animals

Trained service animals are permitted to ride openly, on-leash on all PRTC buses.  All other animals must be contained in a cage and held on the passenger's lap.


Bike Racks

For the convenience of bicyclists, PRTC’s OmniLink, Cross County and Metro Direct buses have been equipped with bike racks.  However due to scheduling, some Linton Hall Metro Direct and Manassas Metro Direct trips require the use of MCI coach buses, which do not have bike racks. Each rack holds two bicycles and is easy to use. Bike racks are not available on OmniRide commuter buses. To learn more about how to use the bike racks, download the PDF "Rack-n-Ride" brochure.

The level of service during inclement weather is dependent on the type and amount of precipitation. See PRTC's Emergency Service Plan for more details.
