Fairfax County officials are preparing for the launch of new bus services in the Reston and Herndon area through the Fairfax Connector.
The changes — which were approved by the Board of Supervisors in February — will connect commuters to the Herndon, Reston Town Center and Innovation Center Metro stations, which are set to open on Nov. 15.
“With the realigned service, buses will operate more frequently to link customers to new Metrorail Silver Line Stations, including new connections to employment, education, hospitals and key activity centers,” the county wrote in a news release.
Four new routes will be offered. One route will connect the Reston Town Center Transit Station to Inova Fair Oaks Hospital, Fairfax County Government Center, Fair Oaks Mall, Fair Lakes and Greenbriar Center.
The Reston Town Center station will also have new Capital Bikeshare stations.
Look!👀 @bikeshare🚲 stations at the Reston Town Center Metro are all set for the opening on Nov. 15. There are 34 other #CaBi stations in Reston to ride to and from the new Metro station. #CapitalBikeshare #SilverLine #Reston #FairfaxCounty https://t.co/mcnlBUNun0 pic.twitter.com/Uvrh6IEZOO

A second route will connect the Herndon Metro Station, Centerville Road, and the park and rides at Sully Station, Centerville and Centreville-UMC.
The third route — known as the Herndon Circulator — will provide connections between the Herndon Metro Station, Spring Street, downtown Herndon, Elden Street, Archer Avenue and Worldgate Drive.
The final route provides connections between Sterling Plaza, Crest View Drive, Herndon Parkway and the Herndon station.
A dozen other routes were also tweaked to provide replacement services. A breakdown of all bus service changes is available online.
Local transportation officials are set to discuss the Connector changes at a meeting tomorrow at 11 a.m.
Interested participants can join the meeting online through Microsoft Teams or by phone, calling 571-429-5982 with the passcode 795 911 947#.
