Good afternoon and thank you for joining me for today's Ask Fairfax! discussion. Tomorrow marks the largest service changes in the history of Fairfax Connector with the start of Silver Line service. 40 percent of Fairfax Connector bus service is changing to connect to Metrorail-- we are implementing 16 new routes and modifying 28 of our existing routes.
Passengers in the Herndon, Reston, and Tysons areas are seeing the largest changes as routes that today serve West Falls Church on the Orange Line will change tomorrow to serve Wiehle, Spring Hill, Greensboro, Tysons Corner, or McLean stations on the Silver Line. I hope everyone is prepared for this change and want to note that Fairfax Connector's service change information is on our website, fairfaxconnector.com. Silver Line information is online at silverlinemetro.com.
Before I get start responding to your questions, I want to remind everyone that Fairfax Connector will be operating two bus shuttle routes to connect passengers in the Herndon, Reston, and Tysons areas to the Orange Line until Silver Line trains start operating tomorrow.
WIEHLE - WEST FALLS CHURCH: Shuttle buses will operate non-stop between West Falls Church and the new Wiehle station. The first shuttle buses will depart Wiehle for West Falls Church at 7:20 and 7:40 a.m. to connect with the first Route 505 and Route 950 bus arrivals at Wiehle. The first shuttle bus will depart West Falls Church for Wiehle at 7:45 a.m. to transport passengers from the Orange Line to Wiehle to connect with Reston and Herndon buses. The last shuttle bus from West Falls Church to Wiehle is scheduled to depart at 12:40 p.m.
TYSONS AREA - WEST FALLS CHURCH: Shuttle buses will operate between West Falls Church and the McLean, Tysons Corner, Greensboro, and Spring Hill stations, with stops at each station. The first shuttle bus will depart Spring Hill Station for West Falls Church at 6:35 a.m. to connect with the first Route 574 bus arriving at Spring Hill. The first shuttle bus will depart West Falls Church to McLean, Tysons Corner, Greensboro, and Spring Hill stations at 7 a.m. to transport passengers from the Orange Line to the Tysons area. Buses will operate approximately every 20 minutes. The last shuttle bus from West Falls Church to the Tysons area is scheduled to depart at 1:10 p.m.
Note that the two special shuttle bus routes will operate Saturday, July 26 only. Shuttle schedule information is online at http://silverlinemetro.com/fairfax-connector-shuttle-service-on-july-26/.
I'll now start with our first question.
