Fairfax Connector schedules changing

The Fairfax Connector bus system will change some routes and schedules in Mount Vernon, Reston and Tysons Corner starting Monday. The routes affected are 151, 152, 574 and RIBS 5. A new route, numbered 159, will be created.

The new route will provide service in the rush hour direction between the Engleside neighborhood, Richmond Highway and the Huntington Metro station. The schedule for Routes 151 and 152 will be modified to reflect the realities of travel times and to improve the accuracy of the schedule. Route 151 will operate primarily on the west side of Richmond Highway, while Route 152 will operate primarily on the east side.

Route 574 has schedule problems because of the construction and traffic delays in Tysons Corner. So the route will be truncated. Service between Tysons West Park and Tysons Corner Center will be eliminated. On RIBS 5, the scheduled time between buses will be increased to more accurately reflect the run times.

The new route maps and schedules are on the Fairfax Connector's Web site, at
