Members of the public have an opportunity to shape future routes and schedules for Loudoun County Transit’s Premium Commuter Bus service. The county is seeking feedback on proposed route and schedule changes for the bus service through an online survey. All responses to the survey will be taken into consideration before a final decision is made on the routes and schedules.
The changes are focused on improving the on-time performance of the various routes that travel through Washington, D.C. A major change is splitting the routes that had been designated as “All City” into “DC East” and “DC West.” This change is designed to shorten the travel time for riders on the east side of the district while improving the schedule reliability for riders on the west side. Although the change will result in a reduced number of buses serving either side of the city, the shorter travel times and improvements in on-time performance should offset that change.
Members of the public may submit comments on the proposed changes through an interactive, online survey map that illustrates each proposed route or schedule change. Clicking on the name of the route will display a summary of the current and proposed route with links to a current and proposed timetable as well as the proposed schedule for the corresponding Loudoun County park and ride lot. The survey map is posted at loudoun.gov/proposedroutechanges. The survey will be online through February 3, 2020.
The proposed route changes are scheduled to go into effect in spring 2020.
The Loudoun County Premium Commuter Bus system operates morning and late afternoon rush hour service from Loudoun Park and Ride lots to Rosslyn, Crystal City, the Pentagon, and Washington, D.C. More information about all Loudoun County Transit bus services is online at loudoun.gov/transit.
