In the summer of 2016, NVTC and the Commonwealth Transportation Board endorsed the first 10 multimodal components of the Transform 66 Multimodal Project. Below is a list of each of the projects with links to a summary.
Bus Stop Consolidation and Accessibility Improvements
By consolidating underutilized and closely spaced bus stops along seven routes – Metrobus 2A, 3Y, 15L, 38B, 42 and 77, and ART 55 – this project reduces travel times and increases new bus riders by 15 percent.
Peak Period Service Expansion to ART Bus Route 55
This project will add a sixth bus to the ART Route 55 along Lee Highway, providing additional peak-period transit service.
Peak Period Service Expansion to Metrobus Route 2A, Washington Boulevard-Dunn Loring
By increasing bus frequency and decreasing route run times, this project will serve 150 new weekday riders, increasing daily ridership to 2,700.
Loudoun County Stone Ridge Enhanced Transit
This project includes the construction of a 300-space park-and-ride lot and two years of operation for new commuter bus transit service from the new lot in the unincorporated community of Aldie.
Fairfax Connector Express Service from Government Center to State Department/Foggy Bottom
This project includes the creation of a new weekday, peak-period Fairfax Connector Express bus service route between the Fairfax County Government Center park-and-ride facility, and the State Department and the Foggy Bottom neighborhood in Washington, DC.
PRTC Gainesville to Pentagon Commuter Service
This project includes the implementation of a new commuter bus transit service between Gainesville and the Pentagon.
Expanded TDM Outreach to the I-66 Corridor
This project expands and existing TDM program and will provide information, incentives and encouragement to choose multimodal commute options.
Expanded Transit Access Through Capital Bikeshare
An additional 16 bike share stations, some adjacent to Metrorail stations, will serve as a first-mile/last-mile solution, with the potential to increase daily trips at the two Falls Church Metrorail stations by 450.
Loudoun County Transportation Demand Management
This project expands a successful transportation demand management (TDM) program by targeting commuters bound for locations along the I-66 corridor inside the Beltway or Washington, D.C.
Multimodal Real-Time Transportation Information Screens
Multimodal, real-time transportation screens, which provide dynamic information, will be placed at the East Falls Church, Virginia Square-GMU, Clarendon, and Court House Metrorail stations; high utilization bus stops; and in residential and office buildings in the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor
