In light of Metro’s SafeTrack maintenance plan beginning June 4, we have begun communicating about the effects of Metro’s service changes on commuters in Loudoun County. In addition to changes to our transit schedule, we expect traffic to increase overall throughout Loudoun as commuters may opt to drive instead of choosing transit.
We recognize that many of your constituents may commute through Loudoun County and some may even use our transit services, so we wanted to provide you with resources and information about the effects of SafeTrack on Loudoun. Please share with your audiences as you deem appropriate. For ease of sharing, we’ve provided direct links for the resources below.
