They are dropping the 425 on the weekend!?

I don't use it often, but it does come in handy from time to time.

It was considered 'duplicative' service and had low ridership on weekends 5-10 riders per trip. Alternate weekend service per Fairfax County Department of Transportation is provided by Metrobuses 28A-B, 2T, and 3T, page 19 of http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dmb/lobs/agency_lobs_presentations/100.pdf . (Note that this document was prepared in November, before the Board of Supervisors adjustments in April). DrG has the final bus cut list above.

If you have any questions why this is so, the FCDOT's phone # is 703-877-5600. I hardly ever go to Tyson's, so info have available is from the web.
