The Fairfax Connector is planning to start 15 new bus routes this year in conjunction with the opening of the Metro's Silver Line in December.
The commuter bus service discussed those plans at a meeting in Reston Thursday night. There will be another similar meeting at Lake Anne Elementary School at 6:30 p.m. on Monday.
The new bus routes would replace current ones that take commuters to the West Falls Church station, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation says.
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation is gathering feedback at meetings (ek). In late March or early April, the department will present a revised plan to the public.
But will commuter buses be enough to quell traffic concerns in Reston, where there will be a 2,300-spot parking garage at the Wiehle-Reston East Station. That station will the end of the line for the Silver Line for years. It will also be the only Phase 1 station with parking.
WTOP talked to people at the meeting. See some of their concerns here.
