Congratulations to Loudoun County Transit for Passing 1 Million Riders

Loudoun County Transit (LC Transit) has reached the milestone of one million rides.

Earlier this week, on Wednesday, May 11, at about 7:30 a.m., a passenger crossed the threshold by boarding a Loudoun County commuter bus, putting the service over one million rides for Fiscal Year 2011.

LC Transit provides commuter bus service weekdays from twelve park and ride lots throughout Loudoun to destinations within the Washington metropolitan region, including Tysons Corner, West Falls Church, Rosslyn, Crystal City, and the Pentagon. Buses also make stops in the District of Columbia along major business corridors and near federal buildings and tourist locations.

In FY 2001, total passenger trips were just over 180,000. By June 2011 and the end of FY 2011, LC Transit will have logged just over 1.2 million passenger trips. In 10 years the annual passenger trips have increased more than six fold.

According to the Loudoun County Office of Transportation Services, the passengers of LC Transit, instead of driving alone, have helped remove over 2,600 cars daily from area roadways.
