Fairfax Connector Route and Schedule Changes Effective Oct. 1
Fairfax Connector bus service in north Fairfax County will implement route and schedule changes effective Oct. 1. The routes affected are as follows:
Route 504: This route will be discontinued. Route 574 is an alternative to Route 504. Information on other options is available by calling the Fairfax Connector Information Center at 703-339-7200, TTY 703-339-1608, or visiting the news section of the Web site www.fairfaxconnector.com.
Route 574: Routing and scheduling within Reston are changed. There will be additional weekday trips and weekend service. At the Reston Town Center Transit Station, Route 574 will be in Bay J instead of K.
Route 929: Routing and scheduling within Franklin Farm and Chantilly Highlands are changed so that buses operate the route in the same direction in the mornings and afternoons. This change anticipates the effect that construction of a median on Centreville Road south of McLearen Road will have on the current routing.
Route 989: The route is split into two new routes numbered 595 and 597 with new schedules for each. Route 595 will serve the Pentagon and Route 597 will serve Crystal City. At the Reston East Park-and-Ride, 595 will be in Bay E and 597 in Bay D. Route 595 will still use Bay L at the Pentagon. Maps, schedules and other information on the new routes can be found at www.fairfaxconnector.com under “Service Highlights.”
These changes are designed to maximize the effectiveness of existing resources by moving buses from routes with low ridership to routes that are at full capacity, to alleviate “standing room only” conditions and to provide more efficient service. New bus timetables are available on board buses, at Connector Stores, at www.fairfaxconnector.com or by calling the Information Center at 703-339-7200, TTY 703-339-1608.
