Public Feedback Sought on Proposed Improvements to Existing Fairfax Connector Routes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 16, 2018
#C37_18

Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is requesting public feedback on proposed Fairfax Connector service changes to existing routes 161/162,  321/322 and 699, and on the establishment of new routes 308 and 467. The proposed changes aim to increase ridership and to enhance customer experience through improved connectivity, on-time performance and service reliability. FCDOT will host two outreach events on the proposed changes with the same information presented at both meetings:

The meetings will include a presentation at 7:00 p.m. on the proposed changes. Fairfax Connector representatives will be on hand to answer questions and take feedback from attendees.

Proposed Changes

Route 308 (new service) – Richmond Highway

  • Provides weekday and Saturday service between Franconia-Springfield Metrorail Station and Mount Vernon Hospital via Jeff Todd Way and Richmond Highway.

Route 467 (new service) - Vienna–Tysons – (This proposal has been through a public input process earlier in 2018. However, additional comments are welcomed)

  • Provides complementary, mid-day and evening service to Route 462. This route provides mid-day, late evening and Saturday service from the Vienna Park neighborhood to the Mosaic District, the Town of Vienna, and Tysons.

Route 161/162 – Hybla Valley Circulator

  • Adjusts time between Routes 161/162 to address on-time performance issues. Eliminates one late-night trip on Route 161.

Route 321/322 - Greater Springfield Circulator

  • Adjusts rush-hour service frequency to every 30 minutes and implement a minor re-route of service off Indian Run Parkway to Bren Mar Drive.

Route 699 – Government Center – Downtown D.C.

  • Adds one(1) morning and one(1) afternoon trip to address increased demand for service and address capacity issues.
