Kiss And Ride? Yep We've Got That In Woodbridge VA

By
Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Group

Woodbridge VRE Kiss and Ride
With great flourish, pomp and circumstance the Woodbridge VRE pedestrian overpass opened almost 18 months ago.  Then it sat with the elevvator doors locked and no one could access the overpass.

Then in December the bulldozers start to work on the Route 1 side of the tracks.  Starting on Monday January 30, 2012 the new "Kiss and Ride" drop off and bus stop will now be open.  For commuters this means you no longer have to the round about route to drop off passengers in the front of the station and get stuck at the traffic lights. 


For anyone who takes any of the commuter buses from the Woodbridge VRE station you will now be able to catch your bus on Route 1 and Greyhound plans to also use this new stop fo passengers as well.

It may take a little bit of getting used to but this will save traffic coming in and out of Belmont Bay.  This project is just the start of what is planned along this section of the Route 1 corridor.  The Woodbridge VRE station is the most heavily used station in the area.

Cindy,

There may not be a lot of kissing going on, but there is sure a lot of traffic at the Kiss and Rides on this side of the river.

Why all the hoopla on the opening, then lock the elevators to prohibit access? I guess it was a milestone? Good to know this will be helping out the commute situation. Kiss and Ride? Or KISS and Ride? Just wondered if it was keep it simple, stupid :)

Richard-this should help the bus traffic that has to make the crazy loop off of Route 1.  It's a start on major upgrades to the Rt 1 in this area.

I would ask why the heck they would build something then not use it, but it is the government, logic isn't in their budget or plans.

What a cool concept, "kiss and ride".  Glad they will start to use it soon and it looks like that will really help traffic in your area.

Todd-they had the money to build the pedestrian bridge and then had to wait for the money to build the road.  Use it or lose it rules apply for local funding?
