Here’s Why Buses With Police Escorts Drove Through Reston Tuesday

Police escorted buses at RTC/Credit: LoveRunAndPray via TwitterSeveral Reston Now readers noticed about nine tour buses with a police escort traveling through Reston and making a slow pass through the Reston Town Center Tuesday at about noon.

Was it a presidential candidate? Visiting dignitary? Rock star and entourage?

None of the above.

The bus brigade was merely the NAIOP Commercial Real Estate Development Association’s annual Northern Virginia bus tour, RTC officials said. The police presence was to keep everyone together.

The NAIOP bus tour gathers together hundreds of commercial real estate brokers, developers and other interested parties to check out buildings and markets in Fairfax and Loudoun counties.

Reston Town Center, of course, is a hot spot for Northern Virginia commercial real estate. RTC officials say the center’s office space is 100-percent leased.
