Loudoun Launches New Commuter Bus Service, Announces Schedule Changes

Beginning, Feb. 6, 2017, Loudoun County Transit will add commuter bus service to Washington D.C. from the East Gate Park and Ride, located at 43664 Tall Cedars Pkwy in Chantilly.

Since opening in the summer of 2015, the East Gate Park and Ride has provided Metro-Connection Bus Service, taking riders to the Wiehle-Reston Metro rail station. In addition to Metro-Connection service, riders now will have the option to travel directly to Washington D.C. via Loudoun Transit’s Commuter Bus service from the East Gate Park and Ride, which has 218 free parking spaces.

Loudoun Transit also has made changes to some existing routes that run from the Dulles South Park and Ride. The Dulles South Park and Ride has 350 free parking spaces and is located at Stone Ridge Village Center, 42015 Village Center Plaza in Aldie.  The service changes are designed to alleviate overcrowding, shorten existing trips and increase reliability, according to a release from the Loudoun County government. The changes were developed after an extensive public process that included recommendations and suggestions from commuters and the general public.
