Bus bay at Wiehle-Reston EastFairfax Connector says a few changes will go into effect beginning Monday in order to better serve bus passengers heading to the Weihle-Reston East Silver Line station.

From Fairfax Connector:

Routes 553 and 557

• Morning northbound buses will drop-off passengers on the NORTH side of Wiehle-Reston East Station. Afternoon southbound buses will continue to board passengers at Bus Bay Q on the SOUTH side of the station (no change to the afternoon boarding location).

Routes 951

• Buses will serve U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) campus via Sunrise Valley Drive both eastbound and westbound due to the conclusion of construction on the USGS entrance road.
• Buses will serve stops along Sunrise Valley Drive between Reston Parkway and USGS on all trips.

Route 980

• Morning eastbound buses will drop-off passengers on the SOUTH side of Wiehle-Reston East Station.
• Afternoon westbound buses will continue to board passengers at Bus Bay G on the NORTH side of the station (no change to the afternoon boarding location).
• The 5 a.m. departure from Herndon-Monroe will drop passengers at Wiehle north side due to a connection with Route 952 service. This bus continues westbound as Route 952 after arriving at Wiehle.

    Change to the 980 for the morning route makes sense — those 2 left turns to get to the North side bay can eat up minutes on the morning commute. Glad to see FFX Connector reassessing after the initial changes.

    We need a bus route to serve North Reston west of 286. It’s crazy that there’s no convenient bus access from Walnut Branch Road on the west side of 286.
