The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors will hold a Transit Summit beginning at 6 p.m., tonight, Wednesday, May 27, in the Board Room of the Loudoun County Government Center, 1 Harrison Street, S.E. in Leesburg.
With the county's continuing growth and increased demand for transit, Loudoun County is updating its Transit Development Plan and working on other transit-related projects. The Transit Summit will give the Board an opportunity to give direction to staff on how to provide transit services over the next six years. The Board will hear from Loudoun County staff on a variety of transit-related topics including:
- Background on Loudoun County Transit and Commuter Services, including a status report on the Transit Development Plan
- Funding and service delivery plan development for Loudoun County Transit and Commuter Services
- Proposed bus service changes for Fiscal Year 2016
- Supplementing services with private companies and volunteer organizations to enhance the mobility of seniors and people with disabilities
- The composition of the county's transit fleet
Other transit-related topics that may be discussed if time allows include an update on a new electronic payment program for Metro, an overview of Loudoun County Commuter Services, and update on the Transportation Demand Management Plan, the county's outreach to employers about commuting options, and carpool, vanpool and other ridesharing programs.
