Loudoun Continues Opposition to MWAA Dulles Rail Station Decision

Loudoun Continues Opposition to MWAA Dulles Rail Station Decision

From Loudoun County -- The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors has taken action on several fronts in its continued opposition to the decision of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) Board of Directors in favor of an underground alignment for the proposed Metrorail station at Dulles International Airport.

At Tuesday’s meeting, the Board of Supervisors directed the County Administrator to seek additional information from MWAA and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority regarding the potential impacts on Dulles Metrorail, the operations at Dulles Airport, and any possible extension further into Loudoun County should the Board vote to opt out of the funding agreement for Phase 2 of the project.

Loudoun County Transit Celebrates One Million Rides Milestone

Loudoun County Transit (LC Transit) has reached the milestone of one million rides. On Wednesday, May 11, 2011, at about 7:30 a.m., a passenger crossed the threshold by boarding a Loudoun County commuter bus, putting the service over one million rides for Fiscal Year 2011.

LC Transit provides commuter bus service weekdays from twelve park and ride lots throughout Loudoun to destinations within the Washington metropolitan region, including Tysons Corner, West Falls Church, Rosslyn, Crystal City, and the Pentagon.  Buses also make stops in the District of Columbia along major business corridors and near federal buildings and tourist locations. 

In FY 2001, total passenger trips were just over 180,000.  By June 2011 and the end of FY 2011, LC Transit will have logged just over 1.2 million passenger trips.  In 10 years the annual passenger trips have increased more than six fold.
