Fairfax ConnectorThe first day of Silver Line service on July 26 will be the last day for the Sunset Hills Interim Park and Ride Lot, Metro officials said.

The lot at 12050 Sunset Hills Road has been a parking lot for commuters who took the Fairfax Connector Bus to the West Falls Church Metro.

Commuter parking will now be replaced by the 3,300-space parking garage adjacent to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station at Sunset Hills Road and Wiehle Avenue.

Fairfax Connector’s Route 505 will continue to operate, taking passengers from Reston Town Center to Wiehle-Reston East.

Many other bus routes will take people from Reston stops to Wiehle-Reston East. To see the full route schedule, visit Fairfax Connector’s Reston page.

Riders can also learn more in an online chat Fairfax Connector is hosting on Wednesday, July 9. For more information, visit Ask Fairfax!
