For Immediate Release
March 17, 2020
**The community meetings previously scheduled for March 21, March 25 and April 1, 2020, have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date. Residents can provide input via an online survey at https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/connector/reston-herndon-bus-service-review-survey-preferred. The survey will be open until further notice.**
Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) encourages public input on the preferred plan to provide enhanced Fairfax Connector bus service in the Reston and Herndon areas, including connections to the future Metrorail Silver Line Phase 2 stations. The preferred service plan was developed based on public input received through community engagement in 2019, stakeholder engagement and technical analysis. After this final round of community input, FCDOT will finalize the preferred plan based on public feedback and technical analysis and take to the Board of Supervisors for approval.
The service changes will coincide with the start of service and opening of Phase 2 Metrorail Silver Line stations: Reston Town Center Station, Herndon Station, Innovation Center Station, Dulles Airport Station, Loudoun Gateway Station and Ashburn Station.
