Service Changes for Loudoun County Transit
New Schedule for Route 88X Effective October 22, 2018
In order to address the on-time performance of Route 88X, Loudoun County Transit has prepared a revised schedule for both morning and afternoon service. The schedule has been adjusted so that the times more accurately reflect the normal, heavy traffic conditions that have been experienced on this route.
We also studied the live GPS data to determine if there would be a time advantage to using Rt. 267 & Rt. 606 versus the current use of Rt. 28 & Rt. 50. We found there was no advantage, due to the longer distance traveled on the alternate route and the traffic at the intersection of Rt. 50 and Loudoun County Parkway. So, except in cases of extraordinary traffic disruptions, Route 88X will continue to use the current routing of Route 28 & Rt. 50.
In order to provide an improved on-time performance, the new timetable will be implemented before the Bus Time system is updated with the new timetables. Therefore, temporarily Bus Time will not be able to provide accurate arrival predictions. As soon as Bus Time is updated, an additional notice will be released.
