Loudoun County Transit bus service resumed full service this week following an end to the labor action between Loudoun’s bus services contractor, Keolis, and its employees, many of whom drive Loudoun’s buses. As Keolis drivers have returned to work, the county’s full schedule of local bus routes, including those that connect to Metro Stations, and the county’s commuter bus services are now operating normally.
