Letter received from Loudoun county on bus service to Tysons corner.

Tysons Express Bus Service Update
Tue, March 23, 2010 3:38:03

Thank you for your interest or recent participation in the Tysons Express Survey for Loudoun County. The survey was completed by 232 people and the survey results are now available to the public at http://www.loudoungov/bus-tysons. The survey results indicate that 177 of the 232 participants “are interested in riding Tysons Express.” An additional 41 respondents indicated they “needed schedule information before making a decision.” The input of the survey takers will be used to plan the time schedule and stops in Tysons Corner.

The Tysons Express service is proposed to begin operations on June 21. The two departure points are the park and ride lots in Leesburg off Sycolin Rd. and a new lot in Broadlands South off old Ryan Road. Both locations will provide easy access to the Dulles Greenway and the Airport Access Road. There will be seven morning departures and seven afternoon/evening returns. Tysons Express will not make any stops once departing Ashburn and en route to Tysons Corner.

Tysons Express is funded by the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project. The project includes a Transportation Management Plan (TMP) which has a specific mission of reducing congestion in Tysons during the most disruptive period of the rail construction.

A frequent concern in the survey responses was how to handle emergencies requiring an early departure from work, and the ability to run errands at lunchtime without a car. These concerns have been addressed with the Guaranteed Ride Home Program at http://www.commuterconnections.org and the free lunchtime Tysons Connector shuttle busses at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/connector/.
