August 10, 2009
In response to passenger requests after the Jun. 29 launch of Fairfax Connector’s new western Fairfax routes, starting Aug. 17, Fairfax Connector will be adding additional trips, modifying start points and adjusting schedules to better coincide with Metrorail departures from the Vienna Metro station.
Fairfax Connector is adding the following trips:
Eastbound: 9:15 a.m.
Westbound: 9:10 p.m.
Eastbound: 9:15 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m.
Westbound: 8:45 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m., 9:00 p.m., 9:45 p.m. (short trip)

Westbound: 8:38 a.m., 9:26 a.m., 8:33 p.m., 9:33 p.m.
Fairfax Connector is changing the following trip times:
Eastbound: First three a.m. trips will now start at Lee Jackson Memorial Highway and Centreville Road. New start times are: 5:15 a.m., 5:49 a.m., 6:25 a.m.
Changed former short trips on route 642 to route 644
Start times are:

Westbound: 7:53 p.m.
Fairfax County absorbed the Metrobus 2W, 12 and 20 series lines into the Fairfax Connector bus system on June 29, 2009. This was to give the county greater flexibility in determining the levels and types of bus service it can provide to county residents, and allow for future expansion of service more quickly and at a lower cost than if provided by WMATA.
