For Immediate Release
Feb. 22, 2022
Earlier today, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved Fairfax Connector bus service changes in the Reston-Herndon area that include connections to the new Metrorail Silver Line stations in Fairfax County (Herndon Station, Reston Town Center Station, and Innovation Center Station). These service changes will go into effect when the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority (WMATA) begins service to the new Metrorail Silver Line stations.
The new Fairfax Connector service plan for the Reston-Herndon area reflects the results of a three-year community and stakeholder engagement process to envision a transit network that preserves the best of the existing system while linking with new Metrorail Silver Line Stations and creating new connections based on travel patterns, growth, and service demand in the area. Through service modifications, removal of duplicate service and addition of new routes, this plan aims to enhance Fairfax Connector customer experience and increase ridership through improved connectivity, on-time performance, service reliability, and effectiveness. The plan delivers a simplified route structure and addresses the needs of the community including improved access to transit options, employment, education, hospitals, and key activity centers within the region.
