STUDENTS CAN RIDE HRT BUSES FREE THROUGH 2000-01 SCHOOL YEAR

Representatives from Hampton Roads Transit, the region's only mass transportation provider, will be at Old Dominion University three times in the coming weeks to answer questions about free bus service to and from the Norfolk campus.

Students at the Norfolk campus will be able to ride buses free through the 2000-01 school year, thanks to an agreement between Old Dominion parking services and Hampton Roads Transit.

An HRT bus and transit personnel will be on Kaufman Mall from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6, and information tables will be set up from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, for the Main Street student activities fair to explain the service.

A bus and an information table will be set up from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, at Auxiliary Services' "Wacky Olympics."

HRT operates buses in Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Suffolk.

University faculty and staff must also show a pass allowing them to travel to and from campus for $22 per semester. Passes are available from the university parking services offices at 43rd Street and Elkhorn Avenue.

Starting Friday, Sept. 1, students can show their I.D. cards to drivers on HRT buses for free admission and faculty and staff must show fare cards purchased at parking services.

For more information, call parking services at 683-4004. For schedules, call HRT at 222-6100.
