Fairfax Connector Service Changes Starting Jun. 28
May 28, 2009
Fairfax Connector will reduce service or eliminate some of its routes and increase fares on express routes, effective June 28, 2009. These changes are due to the county’s budget shortfall and a reduction of over 8 percent to the Connector’s fiscal year (FY) 2010 budget.
Fairfax Connector’s FY 2010 budget includes a fare increase to $7 for three express routes which travel outside Fairfax County boundaries. These are routes 380, 595, and 597, which provide bus service to the Pentagon and Crystal City. This fare increase does not apply to any other routes.
Bus routes which will have reduced service on holidays
380, 585, 980
Bus routes which will have reduced weekend service
Bus routes which will have reduced weekday service
301, 505, 553, 557, 585.
Bus routes which have been discontinued include:
303, 556, 922, VRE EZ-Bus.
