New Bus Line to Ft. Belvoir

As northern Virginia braces for the commuting woes expected with the transfer of thousands of jobs to Fort Belvoir, officials in Fairfax County hope a new bus route will ease some of the pain.

County officials will inaugurate service Wednesday morning of Fairfax Connector Route 335 from the Metrorail station at Franconia-Springfield to Fort Belvoir. Regular service will begin Sept. 6. The route provides a direct link to Belvoir from both Metro and the Virginia Railway Express commuter rail system.

Thousands of military jobs are moving from the Washington area's inner suburbs - which are well served by mass transit - to Fort Belvoir as part of a nationwide base realignment. Local officials are worried that the realignment will add to traffic gridlock in the region.
