Quick Facts:

  • Who is involved? The project is being undertaken by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA), with assistance and coordination from Fairfax County (VA) and Fairfax Connector.
  • What is being studied?
    17A, 17B, 17F, 17M: Kings Park Line
    17G, 17H, 17K, 17L: Kings Park Express Line
    18E, 18F: Springfield Line
    18G, 18H, 18J: Orange Hunt Line
    18P, 18R, 18S: Burke Centre Line
  • Why was this corridor chosen for study?
  • WMATA is reviewing these lines in cooperation with the on-going Fairfax Connector TDP (Connections 2015), in an effort to improve efficiency and effectiveness of the lines, while also enhancing connections between Metrobus and Connector services.
  • When did the study begin?
  • The study began in February, 2015. Metro and its partners will study the line over a six-month period and expects to have preliminary recommendations ready for Metrobus board approval by late summer/early fall 2015.
  • What is the study process?
  • The Metrobus Service Evaluation Study for the 17 & 18 Lines has three main components:
    1. Review capacity, productivity, reliability and quality of service indicators
    2. Identify the need for customer facilities
    3. Recommend changes to improve service delivery
The evaluation process will include a number of analytical techniques geared towards better understanding the operations and performance of the Metrobus services and the settings in which these services operate. Ultimately, recommendations will assist with improving route directness and simplicity, service levels, reliability, connectivity and the customer experience.
