The Fairfax County Department of Transportation will hold public meetings and an Ask Fairfax! online chat to discuss a Fairfax Connector proposed bus service plan coming with the opening of Metro later this year.
Metro's Silver Line Phase 1 is slated to open in December. The transit line will run from Tysons to Reston's Wiehle Avenue, resulting in changed to local bus service.
The plan includes the creation of 12 new routes, the restructuring of 24 existing routes and the elimination of six routes, Connector officials say.
The revised plan incorporates changes suggested by riders and the community, since the original service proposal was released in January 2013. The complete bus service plan will be discussed at each meeting, with special emphasis placed on area service changes for nearby areas.
