Public Input Sought on Proposed Fairfax Connector January 2019 Service Changes

For Immediate Release
September 4, 2018
#C024_18

Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is seeking public input on proposed changes to Fairfax Connector service that aim to enhance the customer experience. Routes included in this service change proposal are Route 467 (new complimentary route to Route 462), Route 698 (new express service from the Vienna Metrorail Station to the Pentagon), and Routes 924 / 926. After receiving and reviewing public feedback, FCDOT staff is scheduled to present the final proposed changes to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in November 2018. If approved, the changes will go into effect in January 2019.

 

Proposal Highlights:
  • Route 698 – Vienna - Pentagon
    New express route, via I-66, providing 10 morning rush-hour trips to the Pentagon from the Vienna Metrorail Station and 10 evening rush-hour trips from the Pentagon to the Vienna Metrorail Station.
  • Route 467 – Vienna - Tysons
    New route will provide complementary mid-day and evening service to Route 462 which only provides morning and evening rush-hour service. The route will also provide service on Saturdays and aims to improve transit access to the Vienna Park neighborhood.
  • Route 924/926 – Herndon – Dranesville Road
    Times of service for both routes will be aligned with the school’s bell schedule to provide better access to Herndon High School.
