FairfaxConnectorThe convenient way for Burke-area residents to get to Tysons Corner! Fairfax Connector’s Express Connector limited-stop bus service will provide commuters a stress-free, direct commute that is faster than ever before.

Buses are expected to travel on average 55 mph on the Beltway, even during rush hour. That’s because the service will use the dedicated 495 Express Lanes. Three separate routes traveling through different parts of Tysons are designed to let riders choose the most direct trip to their office with minimal time on the bus.

Nine buses will leave Burke during peak times on weekday mornings. From Tysons, there will be eleven departures to Burke during the afternoon and evening, including two at midday.
