There's no free ride: Tysons Connector shuts down

Monday, January 3, 2011

Another experiment has failed to get cars off the road in Tysons Corner. The area's free midday shuttle bus -- the Tysons Connector -- shut down Dec. 30. After one year of operation, ridership was not sufficient to meet minimum goals to continue the service, which was operated by Fairfax County and funded by the metropolitan Washington airports authority.
