Highlights of the Proposed Changes
Route 171 – Richmond Highway: This change would add service to the National Museum of the United States Army on weekends, operating every 30 minutes. The museum is currently served by Route 334 on weekdays.
Route 422 – Boone Blvd. – Howard Avenue: This route would be eliminated due to low ridership and because it will duplicate the new service proposed for Route 467 that will provide service to Old Courthouse and Gallows roads.
Route 462 – Dunn Loring-Navy Federal – Tysons: This route would continue to serve Old Courthouse Rd. and Gallows Rd. operating every 30 minutes, during rush hour, presently being served by Route 422. The route is now linked to Route 467.
Route 467 – Dunn Loring – Tysons: This change would add service to Old Courthouse Road and Gallows Road, add Sunday service and improve frequency, operating every 40 minutes, 7 days a week.
Route 630 – Stringfellow Rd. – Centreville: This minor adjustment improves service, with travel along Centreville Farms Road eastbound and along Leland Road westbound.
Fairfax Connector is proposing five routes that would replace service that has been provided by Metrobus.
Route 703 – Pimmet Hills: This route would replace Metrobus 3T and provide service between the West Falls Church Metrorail and McLean Metrorail stations, operating Monday–Friday + Saturday
Route 715 – Chain Bridge Rd.: This route would replace Metrobus 15K on weekdays only. The first southbound trip starts at Langley and would eliminate a section of the current Metrobus 15K route between Rosslyn and Langley.
Route 803 – Annandale Rd.: This route would replace Metrobus 3A and operate 7-days a week. Weekday rush hour service would operate every 30 minutes, non-rush hour service would improve to every 40 minutes, and weekend service would improve to every 45 minutes. The service operates from Seven Corners on weekends.
Route 834 – Annandale: This route would replace Metrobus 29C, providing rush hour service only every 30 minutes (westbound in A.M. and eastbound in P.M.) and will make schedule adjustments to improve efficiency and performance.
Route 835 – Braeburn Dr. – Pentagon Express: This route would replace Metrobus 29W, providing rush hour service every 30 minutes (eastbound in A.M. and westbound in P.M.).
