Public hearings will gather input on Fairfax Connector changes

Fare hike expected mid-year, while service changes will be implemented near end of 2024

Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will hold two virtual community meetings to share the proposed preferred changes to Fairfax Connector bus service to take effect in December 2024.

These modifications, including the addition of two new routes, are part of Phase II of the Centreville, Chantilly, Vienna, and Tysons (CCVT), and Franconia-Springfield service adjustments. The plan aims to align bus service with current ridership demand. The routes that will be discussed: 335351352610 (new), 670(new) and 921.

The benefit of this new service plan allows riders to travel throughout the region more easily, utilizing the Monument Drive Commuter Parking Garage and Transit Center, and the Springfield Community Business Center Commuter Parking Garage. Both of those facilities will be opening in Summer 2024.

Regional Fare Increase Includes Fairfax Connector
Additionally, the FCDOT team will discuss the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s (WMATA) regional bus fare increase, which includes Fairfax Connector. In April, Metro’s Board of Directors approved a 12.5% fare increase. Currently, it is scheduled to take effect July 1, 2024. Fairfax Connector’s base fare would increase from $2.00 to $2.25, while Express fares would rise from $4.25 to $4.80. Implementation of this change is subject to Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approval.
