Major changes are coming to Metrobus routes 23A and 23C on March 30

March 25th, 2014

On Sunday, March 30, 2014, Metro will improve bus service in the Tysons-McLean-Crystal City corridor. The changes, which will affect Metrobus routes 23A and 23C, were part of a series of improvements presented at our public hearings in the fall of 2013 and will provide significantly improved bus service for the majority of riders on these routes.  This restructuring will also allow better coordination between Metrobus, Metrorail and Fairfax Connector bus service once Silver Line service begins.

What these changes mean for you:

Route 23A riders: 
Route 23A will operate between Crystal City and Tysons Corner Center weekdays during non-peak periods and at all times on weekends. During weekday peak periods, new routes 23B and 23T will replace Route 23A service. New Route 23W will replace all service between Tysons Corner Center and Tysons-Westpark Transit Station.

Route 23C riders:
Routes 23B and 23T will replace all 23C service between the intersection of Old Dominion Drive and Chain Bridge Road in McLean and Crystal City. Route 23C service will be discontinued. Alternate service in the McLean and Langley areas is provided by Metrobus Routes 15K and 15L on Chain Bridge Road and Dolley Madison Boulevard.

NEW Routes 23B and 23T:

  • Route 23B will provide weekday peak period service between Crystal City and Ballston
  • Route 23T will provide weekday peak period service between Shirlington and Tysons Corner Center.
  • The time between buses on each route will be 24 minutes providing a combined 12-minute frequency where the two routes overlap between Shirlington and Ballston. Both routes will operate along the existing 23A route.

NEW Route 23W:
Route 23W will provide shuttle service between Tysons Corner Center and Tysons-Westpark Transit Station along the existing 23A route. Route 23W will operate until the Silver Line and Fairfax Connector Tysons Circulator service begin.
