For Immediate Release
February 11, 2021
Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) has extended the deadline to give feedback through two online surveys for the Richmond Highway Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). The surveys provide an opportunity to weigh in on branding options and station design through Monday, March 1, 2021.
Hearing from people who live and work along Richmond Highway is an integral part of developing the look and feel of future BRT stations and the brand of the system. Take the survey and give your feedback on what the Richmond Highway BRT should be called and what the stations could look like.
Online community meetings were held last fall and last month to present options for branding and station design. The meetings were recorded and available for viewing on the project webpage or by clicking on the links below:

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high-quality public transportation system that operates much like rail service, but uses buses on a separate, dedicated transit way. The Richmond Highway BRT Project implements recommendations developed during a 2015 Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) study.
The BRT project is part of Fairfax County’s Embark Richmond Highway program, which also includes road widening, enhanced bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The Richmond Highway BRT project is funded in part by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.
