Loudoun Transit Announces Bus Service Route Changes

In a continuing effort to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Loudoun County Transit bus service, a number of schedule changes will go into effect throughout the month of July.

The modifications include new routes and stops for the Local Fixed-Route and Premium Commuter Bus services and the elimination of some routes due to low ridership. In addition, the fare for the Commuter Bus service to and from Loudoun County to Washington D.C. will increase by $1 dollar for both SmarTrip ($10) and cash fares ($11) effective July 23.

The schedule changes include:
