Board of Supervisors Seeks Input on Proposed Commuter Bus Fare Increase

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to hold a public input session on a proposed commuter bus fare increase next Thursday, January 20, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Board Room of the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison Street, S.E. in Leesburg.

The purpose of this public input session is solely to solicit input from commuter bus riders regarding a proposal to implement a fare increase of $1.00 per trip on the "long-haul" service from Loudoun County to Rosslyn, the Pentagon, Crystal City and destinations in Washington, D.C. and a fare increase of $0.25 per trip for service to and from the West Falls Church Metrorail station, effective April 1, 2011.

The proposed fare increase would be used to fund future transit infrastructure projects, such as the purchase of additional buses, the development of park and ride lots, and other transit support needs.

Documents prepared for the Board of Supervisors Finance/Government Services and Operations Committee that include more details and background information on the proposed fare increase are online at

Anyone who is unable to attend the public input session may send comments via e-mail directly to the Board of Supervisors at
