Poll: Is OmniRide’s Reduced Bus Service Affecting You?

Some Northern Virginia commuter buses are experiencing delays trying to get to Tysons — or not going there at all.

OmniRide started operating fewer buses on Thursday (Aug. 1) after the union that represents its bus operators rejected to extend the contract, which expired last week, Inside NoVa reported.

While the bus system primarily serves the Prince William County and Manassas areas, some of its routes take riders to and from Tysons.

Five days later, the work stoppage is still impacting bus schedules today (Monday).

More from OmniRide’s modified plan for today:

Our service plan continues to evolve, as a result of the dynamic situation.  We will continue to notify passengers of any further changes to service levels as soon as possible.

Ultimately, service levels depend on the number of operators who come to work, so please stay tuned for updates as we learn more, and keep in mind that the service frequencies listed below are approximate and dependent on anticipated operator attendance.

OmniRide will not have Express bus service for Mark Center and Tysons-Woodbridge today. Several other Express buses have also been changed. Fares are free today for OmniRide Express buses that are not running on a regular schedule today.

For people trying to get to Tysons, OmniRide is encouraging people to hop on a Metro Express bus or share a ride.

Let us know if the recent OmniRide bus service changes have impacted you.
