Loudoun County Transit has announced a free bus service from the park-and-ride lot in Purcellville to the Wiehle-Reston Metro Station beginning Oct. 1.
The new, direct, non-stop bus service will depart from 412 Browning Court beginning at 4:45 a.m., Monday through Friday, with trips every half hour until 8:45 a.m. Buses will also pick up passengers going to Purcellville from Wiehle-Reston East in the morning from 5:30 to 8 a.m.
In the afternoon, buses will make return trips to Purcellville from Wiehle-Reston East from 3 to 7 p.m. and from Purcellville to Wiehle-Reston East from 3:45 to 6:15 p.m.
Route 931 is the designation for Purcellville departures and Route 932 for Wiehle-Reston East departures. Normally these trips would have a cash fare of $1, but through the month of October, Loudoun County’s Metro Connection bus service is free.
This new Metro Connection bus service from Purcellville and the free bus rides are offered through the ISHARE66 Commuter Incentives program, designed to reduce traffic congestion and promote alternative modes of transportation through the Interstate 66 corridor. Increasing ridership of the Metro Silver Line, which currently ends at Wiehle-Reston East, is one way to reduce I-66 congestion.
The incentives are funded through the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission’s I-66 Commuter Choice program and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Details on other incentives and commuter rewards can be found at ishare66.org
