Outreach Efforts to Intensify Route 7 Bus Rapid Transit Plan Project | news/arlington

The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission announced plans for public outreach efforts in conjunction with the proposed “Envision 7” bus rapid transit system in the Route 7 corridor.

A public meeting on the proposal has been set for October 11 at 7 p.m. at Meridian High School in Falls Church and will be accompanied by multiple efforts to update the community along the journey of the proposals under consideration.

The first phase of the upcoming outreach effort will focus on raising awareness of the project, while the second phase will focus more on getting feedback on the concepts under consideration.

The plan calls for the creation of a system which, when completed, will provide high quality bus service between Tysons and Mark Center in Alexandria, via Seven Corners, Falls Church and the East Falls Church subway station.

In July, the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission approved a contract to develop a “Strategic Implementation Roadmap” to guide the project and develop funding sources. This effort should be completed next spring.

The Route 7 BRT project is part of a larger regional network of bus rapid transit services planned in Northern Virginia, which includes the Metroway BRT in Alexandria and Arlington, the West End Transitway in the city of Alexandria, and the Embark Richmond Highway BRT in Fairfax County.
