Tysons Express Bus Service from Loudoun to Tysons Corner Starts June 21

The new Tysons Express Bus Service from Loudoun to Tysons Corner will begin operating Monday, June 21.

The new service will help commuters avoid traffic congestion during the construction of Metrorail to Dulles and the I-495 Capital Beltway High Occupancy Toll lanes. Construction of both projects comes together in Tysons Corner.

The Tysons Express Loudoun service includes four new commuter coach buses with free WiFi. Highlights of the new service include:
  • Seven morning and seven evening trips each weekday between Loudoun and Tysons Corner
  • Morning pickups begin at the Leesburg Park and Ride Lot on Sycolin Road at 5:39 a.m. and the last bus leaves the Broadlands South Park and Ride Lots at 8:36 a.m.
  • Afternoon and evening pickups at 18 stops in Tysons Corner, including major employment sites, occur between 3:30 p.m. and 6:51 p.m.
  • Bus fare is $3 one-way with a SmarTrip card or $3.50 one-way, paying with cash
The buses will travel on the Dulles Greenway and the Dulles Airport Access Road for a scheduled 45-minute ride from Leesburg to the first bus stop in Tysons Corner. Once in Tysons, commuters can take advantage of the free Tysons Connector shuttle service. The Tysons Connector makes stops at major employers, retailers and businesses every ten minutes between 10:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. weekdays.

The Loudoun to Tysons Express Bus Service is managed by the Loudoun County Office of Transportation Services and funded by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority’s Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project.
