“During the first phase of this service review process, our goal is to find out what the community wants from its transit system in the Herndon-Reston area,” said Fairfax Connector Planning Chief Michael Felschow. “Our plan is to then take the community input and develop alternatives for the community to react to,” he continued. “Ultimately, we hope to have a collaborative process and be able to develop recommendations for future service improvements that work for the community.”
Fairfax Connector staff will hand out information about how to get engaged and provide input, along with “free ride coupons” for use on all Fairfax Connector buses in the Herndon-Reston area at the Wiehle Reston-East Metrorail Station on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 3–7 p.m. and the Reston Transit Station on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019, 4–8 p.m.
