We want to hear from you! Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) wants to know how to improve the local bus service provided by Fairfax Connector in the Centreville-Chantilly-Vienna-Tysons areas. FCDOT is looking for public input as part of a process to generate service improvement recommendations. FCDOT's goals for this process include increased mobility, better access to destinations, improved travel times, increased schedule reliability, more effective transit operations and increased ridership.
This alternative is most similar to the current Fairfax Connector service and builds on recommendations from Fairfax Connector’s most recent Transit Development Plan (TDP). It reduces inefficient service and span of service for some routes slightly but improves frequency of service to places such as Tysons. Most routes serving Metrorail would remain oriented to the Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Station.
This alternative completely re-imagines service in the area, including service from a series of local all-day routes, “peak” (rush hour only) service to Metrorail Stations, and express route service to Tysons and the Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Stations. This alternative improves frequency, span of service, and provides new regional connections such as Vienna to Reston, Centreville to Tysons, and Chantilly to the Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Station.
