Loudoun County Transit has made operational changes following the guidance of local, state and national health authorities to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure on the system’s buses. Although the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) extended the face mask requirement for individuals across all transportation networks in the United States through September 13, 2021, Virginia lifted mandates for physical distancing on transit buses.

Over the coming weeks, Loudoun County Transit will continue to monitor ridership and services for possible additional changes. Details on service changes as well as current schedules may be found at loudoun.gov/buschanges.
