As the country celebrates National Transit Day on Oct. 16, Fairfax County offers discounted rides on FAIRFAX CONNECTOR Richmond Highway bus routes. The Bus Fare Buydown program encourages motorists traveling through the Richmond Highway Corridor to try transit instead of driving. Enjoy a discounted ride of just 50 cents now through June 2004 on FAIRFAX CONNECTOR routes 105, 106, 107 and Metrobus 9A. FAIRFAX CONNECTOR base fares are 75 cents without the bus buydown discount.

The Bus Fare Buydown program is a promotion funded by the commonwealth of Virginia to increase Metrorail ridership by lowering the fares on bus routes that serve Metrorail stations. The program offered discounted rides in the Dulles Corridor last year, in the I-95 Corridor in 2002, and in the I-66 Corridor in 2000. The Bus Fare Buydown program has proven to be successful in the past, increasing ridership each year:

FY-02 I-95 Franconia-Springfield + 10.6%
