I-66 commuters get new Park and Ride

Commuters in Manassas got to try out a new Park and Ride that opened Monday near Interstate 66.

The Park and Ride lot boasts 433 parking spaces and a direct link to eastbound I-66. Drivers can access the new lot off Cushing Road from Balls Ford Road near Prince William Parkway.

The new Park and Ride will have full bus service to the West Falls Church Metro station. New lighting sidewalks, benches, bicycle racks and lockers have also been provided. Direct access for buses and HOV traffic to eastbound I-66 will be available from the lot to Route 234 North.

The lot will be open daily from 5 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. Be prepared for a slight shift in traffic as commuters get used to the new traffic signal at Balls Ford Road and Cushing Road.
