Transportation officials for the county proposed slashing more than 86,000 hours from the Fairfax Connector services which buses commuters to and from Metro. The cut would save $7.7 million for the 2010 fiscal year, officials said.
County officials warned the cuts would have a negative impact on commuters in the area. The cuts would make it more difficult for people who use the Fairfax Connector to get to work, appointments and run errands, they said.
The cut proposal came after agencies in Fairfax County were asked how they could cut 15 percent of their costs.
