As Metro Safety Surge 2 Ends, So Does Reston-Pentagon Bus Service

Wiehle-Reston East Metro areaFriday will be the last day for the express bus from Reston to the Pentagon (and the return trip in the afternoon).

The express bus, from Reston North Park-and-Ride lot, went into service June 4, when the first of Metro’s 15 SafeTrack Safety Surges began. The first two safety surges affected Silver, Blue and Orange line riders in Fairfax County, thus the bus to get people to the Pentagon.

Safety Surge No. 3 begins July 5 and will affect Blue and Yellow line riders from Reagan National Airport to Braddock Road.

Metro officials said the Reston-Pentagon bus will return July 20-31 for Safety Surge No. 5 (Single tracking on Silver/Orange lines, Ballston to East Falls Church).

The SafeTrack program involves shutting down parts of Metro in segments through next March in order to complete three years of needed repairs in less than a year, Metro said.

Meanwhile, here is what you need to know about Safety Surge No. 3, which will mean no Metro service to Reagan National Airport for two weeks.

If you have more questions, Fairfax County officials will have an online chat on Thursday at 11 a.m. You can submit a question ahead of time or read it live on Fairfax County’s website.
