Wednesday: Give Your Input on Connector, RIBS Routes

Fairfax Connector Fairfax Connector is proposing changes to Reston Internal Bus System (RIBS) service, routes 928 and 937 in Herndon, and Tysons circulator and Express Lanes routes.

The changes are in response to changing travel patterns and ridership since the start of Silver Line Metrorail service last summer, county officials said.

The proposed changes, to take place in Spring 2015, “aim to improve on-time performance, enhance connectivity, and provide more direct service for the majority of passengers.”

Fairfax Connector will host a public meeting Wednesday, Jan. 28 in Reston to explain the proposed changes and gather feedback from the public. The meeting is at Reston Community Center Lake Anne from 6 to 8 p.m., with the formal presentation at 7 p.m.

Highlights of the proposed changes include:

  • Schedule adjustments to RIBS 1 and RIBS 3 service to improve on-time performance;
  • Route and schedule adjustments to RIBS 2, RIBS 4, RIBS 5, and routes 928 and 937 to provide new and more direct connections in Herndon and Reston;
  • Route and schedule adjustments to Tysons Circulator routes 422, 423, and 424 to provide more direct connections and bi-directional service to the majority of passengers connecting with the Silver Line Metrorail; and
  • Combining routes 493 and 494, with service proposed to operate between Lorton, Saratoga, Springfield, and Tysons via the 95 and 495 Express Lanes.

Routes affected by the proposed changes are 422, 423, 424, 493, 494, 495, 551, 928, 937, RIBS 1, RIBS 2, RIBS 3, RIBS 4, and RIBS 5.
