Tysons Comprehensive Plan - Transportation - Tysons Circulator


Tysons CirculatorIn order to increase the use of Metrorail and other transit services for trips to, from and within Tysons, a system of transit circulators is essential to provide quick and convenient connections between the Metrorail Stations and other locations within Tysons but beyond walking distance of the Metrorail Stations. To facilitate use of the Circulator System, it must be integrated with all other transit serving the greater Tysons area and be accessible, frequent, and convenient for users. In order to accomplish this goal, the circulators should operate in their own, dedicated right-of-way. The first phase of the Circulator System, serving the Metrorail stations immediately after opening, will be bus service operating in mixed traffic on existing rights-of-way. Over the long term the Circulator System may evolve through several phases, transitioning from buses operating in mixed traffic to buses operating on exclusive rights-of-way to, when feasible, a fixed guideway operating on exclusive rights-of-way. The map above shows the conceptual alignment of three potential circulator routes that could serve Tysons once the grid of streets and two new Beltway crossings are constructed. The ultimate alignment will likely change based upon the results of a detailed Circulator Study and other factors, such as the availability of the necessary rights-of-way. `
