For Immediate Release
October 15, 2019
Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will hold a second round of community input meetings and engagement opportunities to encourage public input on alternatives developed to provide enhanced Fairfax Connector bus service in the Reston and Herndon areas, including connections to the future Metrorail Silver Line Phase 2 stations in Herndon and Reston. The service alternatives were developed based on public input received through community engagement earlier this year, stakeholder engagement and technical analysis.
After this round of public engagement, FCDOT staff will develop a preferred service plan to provide better access to destinations, improved travel times, increased schedule reliability and more dependable service. The community will have an opportunity to review and comment on the preferred service plan in early 2020.
**Spanish translation services will be available at the meetings. Community members who would benefit from additional translation services should contact FCDOT at 703-877-5600, TTY 711, no later than seven days prior to the meeting.**
