PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. – You’ll soon be able to catch a bus from Prince William County to Metro’s new Silver Line serving Tysons Corner. With the change, PRTC will no longer serve the Vienna or West Falls Church stations on Metro’s Orange Line.
Here’s more in a statement from the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission:
A big change is coming to the Manassas Metro Direct and Linton Hall Metro Direct routes.
Starting Monday, July 28, 2014, both bus routes will serve the Tysons Corner Metro Station where passengers will be able to connect to Metro’s new Silver Line or to other area bus services. Metro has announced that Silver Line train service will start on Saturday, July 26.
The Manassas Metro Direct and Linton Hall Metro Direct routes will discontinue service to the West Falls Church and Vienna Metro stations after Friday, July 25.
Regional transit agencies are changing most of their routes in the area to take advantage of the new Silver Line stations. At the Tysons Corner Metro Station, PRTC passengers will be able to connect with transit services including MetroBus and Fairfax Connector.
Printed Manassas and Linton Hall Metro Direct schedule brochures and online maps and timetables are being revised and will be available in advance of the move.
