Tysons Connector to Cease Operations Dec. 30

From Virginia MegaProjects:

ALEXANDRIA — The Tysons Connector - the free midday shuttle bus service in Tysons Corner - will operate for two more weeks with its last day of service Dec. 30, 2010.  After one year of operation, ridership was not sufficient to meet minimum goals needed to viably continue the service.

Tysons Connector began in November 2009 to serve area businesses, residents, shoppers and visitors within Tysons Corner.  The service was launched to provide travel options within Tysons during construction of the Dulles Metrorail project as part of the project's comprehensive transportation management plan.

Until Dec. 30, Tysons Connector will continue to operate at 10-minute intervals between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday within Tysons Corner.

After Dec. 30, those riders who use the Tysons Connector may be able to get around Tysons Corner by using the following routes:
