Tri River Transit will reduce its fare to .50 cent on Thursday, June 20, 2013. The normal rate is $1.
During this special celebration, the Tri River Transit encourages everyone to take advantage of the reduced rates and hop a bus.
West Virginians and visitors to our state depend on public transportation every day for work, business, recreation, shopping, and access to education or medical services. It enriches communities by providing safe, affordable transportation and is important to the economic vitality of the state.
