Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) has finalized its Comprehensive Transit Plan (CTP), a ten-year aspirational plan for Fairfax Connector and Metrobus service within the County. The CTP is the basis for the County’s 2016 Transit Development Plan (TDP), the six-year, financially constrained plan approved by the Board of Supervisors in March 2016.
The CTP consists of eight technical memoranda. These documents record the state of bus service within the County, the results of market research conducted with bus riders and with County residents (both users and non-users of bus service), and the recommendations for new bus routes, changes to existing routes, and cancellation of existing routes (where appropriate).
In accordance with Title VI and ADA requirements, please contact the Fairfax County Department of Transportation at 703-877-5600, TTY 711 to request reasonable Title VI or ADA accommodations, including printed material in an alternate format or translated and interpreter services for public events. Requests for assistance at public events must be received at least 7 days in advance of the scheduled event.
Public outreach for the CTP/TDP project was conducted under the name “Connections 2015.” Links to the displays used in the two phases of Connections 2015 are provided below.
Public events and workshops were held in May and June 2015 at various locations around the County to present the recommendations and hear your questions and comments. The public was also able to provide feedback online. All of these comments were reviewed and considered as part of the next steps.
