Welcome to the Reston-Herndon Area Bus Service Review final round of public input! The Metrorail Silver Line is coming to Reston and Herndon via three new stations: Reston Town Center, Herndon, and Innovation Center. New Silver Line service will also operate to three stations in Loudoun County: Dulles Airport, Loudoun Gateway, and Ashburn. Fairfax Connector is considering a variety of options to improve bus service to, from, and around the new stations in Fairfax County.
Our previous round of outreach proposed three bus transit service alternatives, each with their own set of unique characteristics. We ranked the alternatives based on coverage, average travel times between key origin-destination pairs, and ridership potential (see right). We also listened to what Connector riders and nonriders had to say through several public meetings and an online survey. Based on feedback received, the preferred alternative presented today is cost-neutral, and includes the best elements of the three originally proposed scenarios and existing service.
