Service Changes for Loudoun County Transit
Federal Government Shutdown
As of 4:00 AM this morning, the government offices are still shutdown. In response to the Federal Government shutdown and the data that was gathered by staff, thank you to everyone who responded, Loudoun County commuter bus and metro connection services will run as follows on Monday, January 22, 2018 and Tuesday, January 23, 2018:
Monday, January 22, 2018
Commuter Bus Service into Washington DC will operate on regular schedules except for the following runs which have been cancelled:
Ashburn North/CFC – Routes 504 and 507
Dulles South – Route 606
Leesburg/Harmony/Purcellville – Routes 811 and 820
These buses will be used to run extra mid-day service for those passengers who will only be working for 4 hours in the morning, performing an orderly shutdown and then going home. Staff apologize that we couldn’t run service any earlier service than the mid-day buses. Unfortunately, the number of passengers that responded to our survey and stated they are leaving early were from numerous park & ride lots and being let out at times ranging from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM. With such a wide range, staff concluded the best way to handle the early outs is to run extra mid-day service. All of the mid-day buses will follow the regular mid-day schedule, starting at H & 4th ST at 12:45 PM travelling through the city, picking up in Rosslyn at approximately 1:28 PM and then travelling to the Dulles North Transit Center where supervisors will be onsite to direct them where to go next.
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
If the government is still shutdown, Loudoun County will run regular service in both the AM and PM on all services. Staff will meet on Tuesday afternoon to decide what reductions in service need to be made based on the passenger counts from the services provided on Monday and Tuesday morning.
As soon as the government shutdown has ended, Loudoun County Transit will return to normal operations and that information will be posted here.

If you have any questions regarding service, please contact staff at 703-771-5665 between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM.
Whenever there is a situation that involves implementing a phase of the Emergency Services Plan, County staff has to first gather information from the following sources: the National Weather Service, the Office of Personnel Management, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the commuter bus and local fixed route contractors and the Loudoun County Office of Emergency Management. Once staff has determined that a phase of the Emergency Services Plan will be implemented, we will post that determination here and then implement the specific phase of the Emergency Service Plan provided in the link below:
