Loudoun County is adjusting bus schedules and relocating one bus stop to improve service for riders going to Silver Line Metrorail stations. All routes are evaluated for timeliness and efficiency on a quarterly basis throughout the year to better serve all Loudoun Transit riders.
Beginning Tuesday, January 2, 2024, Loudoun County Transit will be adjusting schedules on 20 of the 21 local bus routes serving the Silver Line Metrorail stations in Loudoun and Fairfax counties to reduce wait times and better serve riders who need to make connections at the Metrorail stations. Route 333 serving Quantum Park and Pacific Boulevard with stops at the Loudoun Gateway Metrorail Station remains unchanged.
Riders are encouraged to review the new bus schedules closely as the changes in departure times are significant, ranging from a five-to-20-minute difference, depending on the route. All of the current updates to bus schedules with operating times are posted at loudoun.gov/buschanges.
Bus Stop Location Change on Route 351
Loudoun County Transit will also relocate one bus stop on Route 351 from the Leesburg II Park and Ride Lot – Segra Field to the Leesburg I Park and Ride Lot located at 41951 Gourley Transit Drive in Leesburg. With this adjustment, commuter bus riders will have added flexibility with a midday connection to the Leesburg I Park and Ride Lot from the Ashburn Metrorail Station.
