Fredericksburg Regional Transit (FRED) has implemented changes to its bus routes in
Caroline County effective July 2, 2018. The changes are based on recommendations
from a transit study funded through the Fredericksburg Area Metropolitan Planning
Organization (FAMPO) and are designed to better match service to demand, reduce the
previous mid-day gap in service and begin providing service to the VRE train station in
The Caroline County Board of Supervisors approved the route and schedule changes
following a public hearing at its May 8, 2018 meeting. No additional local funds will be
needed to implement the improvements.
In the past few weeks, FRED kicked off marketing efforts for the new route changes
with postcards mailed to county residents and notice in The Free Lance-Star
newspaper. The June 28th edition of the newspaper also featured a brief article on the
route changes. New schedules have also been placed at the Community
Services Center, library branches, the YMCA and shopping centers along the route.
VRE will post the new schedule at the station and put out a notification through Train
Talk, social media accounts, and on the VRE website. An article in the VRE onboard
magazine RIDE is also planned.
