Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will hold a virtual community input meeting on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at 7 p.m. on Fairfax Connector proposed service changes for October 2022. The public is encouraged to attend the meeting to learn more about the proposed changes, ask questions and provide comments at the meeting. Please provide feedback on the proposed changes via an online survey, email, mail and by phone through May 6, 2022.
Proposed Service Changes
Route 334: Newington Circulator
The proposed change is a service reduction for Route 334.
Routes 350, 351, 352, and 353: TAGS
To improve efficiency on existing Routes 350 and 351, which link the Franconia Metrorail Station to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Springfield Town Center, the proposed change would split Route 350 into 350, 352 and 353. These routes will maintain the existing Route 350 level of service.
Route 495: Burke Center – Tysons
Proposed changes include a service reduction for Route 495. Service between Tysons Corners and Tysons West Park will still be provided by Routes 424, 432, and 494.
Route 722: Chain Bridge – McLean – Langley
Proposed Fare Changes
Route 599: Pentagon – Crystal City Express
In an effort to increase ridership on Route 599 and reduce congestion along I-66 inside the Beltway, county staff applied for and was awarded a fare reduction grant from the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC) Commuter Choice funding. The total NVTC grant is $154,500. The grant covers the Route 599 fare reduction from $7.50 to $4.25, which is the current fare for the other Fairfax Connector express services in the County. The fare reduction is estimated to start by the Fall 2022 and will continue as long as the NVTC grant funding is available. This reduction will be in addition to the TRIP program that reduces fare for low-income households by 50 percent.
