Members of the public have an opportunity to shape future routes and schedules for Loudoun County Transit’s Metro Connection Bus service. The county is seeking feedback on 10 proposed new and modified routes that will provide service to and from Metrorail Silver Line stations in Loudoun County through an online public information meeting and comment period. All responses to the proposed routes will be taken into consideration before final decisions are made on the routes and schedules.
The public is invited to join the online public information meeting for the proposed Silver Line Bus Routes on Thursday, February 25, 2021, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. to ask questions, provide input and learn more about the proposed routes. Login information and meeting materials are available for review at loudoun.gov/silverlinebusroutes and loudoun.gov/remoteparticipation. Meeting materials include detailed route graphics and a speaker sign-up form. Members of the public must sign up in advance to ask questions during the event by 12:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 24, 2021. Online participants may also send questions to the transit team as chat messages, which will be answered during the meeting as time allows.
Comments from the public regarding the proposed Silver Line Bus Routes may be submitted using the online form at loudoun.gov/silverlinebusroutes, by email or postal mail. All comments received by March 26, 2021, will be included in the process to finalize the route.
The proposed Metro Connection Bus Routes to Metrorail Silver Line stations will go into effect when the Ashburn and Loudoun Gateway Metrorail Stations open in Loudoun County, currently estimated for summer 2021.
The Loudoun County Metro Connection Bus provides morning and afternoon rush hour service from Loudoun County neighborhoods and park and ride lots to Metrorail stations. More information about all Loudoun County Transit bus services is online at loudoun.gov/transit.
