A new circulator through the Town of Herndon is set to open when service for phase two of the Silver Line officially begins.

The Herndon Circulator — run through the Fairfax Connector — will include weekday and weekend service through the Herndon Metro station, Spring Street, Downtown Herndon, Elden Street, Parcher Avenue and Worldgate Drive.

“The route was developed in response to community input and to increase connectivity between downtown and the north side Herndon bus bays,” Robin Geiger, a spokesperson for the Fairfax County Department of Transportation, said.

Service is expected to begin when trains start running for phase two, according to the county. It’s unclear that will begin.

Most recently, Metro’s general manager stated that Metro may be operationally prepared to seek safety certification from the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission and Federal Transit Administration sometime this month.

An opening date has not yet been set, although a fall date is anticipated.

The route is one of several approved recently for Fairfax Connector. Other service changes include a new route between Tysons and Centreville that will take effect next year.

The route comes after the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved several new routes and changes to the Fairfax Connector in February.

Under the plan, the county added four new routes, altered 19 existing bus routes, and eliminated 12 bus routes.
