FY 2018 Transit Route Service eliminations

Each year, staff evaluates the performance of all Loudoun County Transit Local Fixed Route, Metro Connection and Premium Commuter Bus routes (long haul). The performance metrics used to measure each route's viability are “Riders per Revenue Hour” and “Cost per Boarding”. Loudoun County has established the following criteria:

Any route that performs less than half of the Riders per Revenue Hour or more than double the average Cost per Boarding for each service as a whole, is a candidate for adjustment or elimination.

In FY 2016 & 2017, the following Local Fixed Routes and Metro Connection routes were performing below the minimum performance criteria and will be discontinued. The last day of service for these routes is Friday, June 30, 2017.

Route 85 – Dulles South local route – anyone riding this route should call the Virginia Regional Transit dispatch office to see if they are a candidate for an On Demand pick up (540-338-1610). For any riders that were taking RT 85 to East Gate to catch the Route 88X, an alternative is to park at the East Gate park & ride lot.

Route 86 - is the Ashburn Link shuttle (free) route that travels from Ashburn Farm through Loudoun Station to the Dulles North Transit Center. Riders of this service will have to find alternative transportation to their preferred park & ride lot.
