Two new express bus routes to Tysons start Monday

WASHINGTON – The Fairfax Connector bus service will begin two new express routes Monday that use the 495 Express Lanes to provide service from southern Fairfax County to Tysons Corner.

The new express routes are Route 493 from Lorton VRE Station and Saratoga Park and Ride to Tysons, and Route 494 from Franconia-Springfield Metro Station and greater Springfield to Tysons.

Both routes will take advantage of the Beltway Express Lanes, similar to the Burke to Tysons route that began in January 2013.

Rides will be free until April 12. After that date, the ride will cost $4 or $3.65 with a SmarTrip card.
