Transportation To Kings DominionKings Dominion: New bus option to the park
From Frank ForresterThis week the local paper here in Richmond reported a new transportation option to get to Kings Dominion from the city. GRTC will be running a bus between the city and Kings Dominion every day that they are open. They will be running eight trips a day and nine trips a day when the park is open till 10pm. The cost of the trip is $5 one waymaking it an affordable way of visiting the park if you don't have a car. Here is the article about it.

From Mike GallagherThat's a nice idea. Geography is not my strong suit. How long a ride is that? I'm not local. I stay in Ashland when I visit KD. It's a 7-8 minute drive to the park.

From Jake Johnsonthat a good deal if you are car less.. 10 buck is less than parking for the most part..

that a 30 min or so depending on where you get on.
i think 8 buses a day will be to much.. i can see 3 in the morning and 3 in evening.
let us know how it goes..
the article said in a couple week they might adjust the schedule depending on ridership.
From Russell MeyerI expect this to last about 3 weeks. Kings Dominion is all by itself in Doswell, and I do not think it can support its own bus line. Long distance bus lines like this can only survive if there are multiple attractions or a single attraction that can draw over 1,000 riders per day. The Bass Pro Shops and Gander Mountain are out that way, but there's really not much else to draw riders. I always hope for mass transit to succeed in situations like this, but the fact of the matter is that a bus like this would have a hard time breaking even.
