Loudoun County Transit will resume Commuter Bus Service from Loudoun County to stops in and around Washington, D.C. on Monday, July 13, 2020. This follows Loudoun County’s move into Phase Three of the “Forward Virginia” reopening plan, which gradually eases restrictions meant to slow the spread of COVID-19. The Commuter Bus routes and schedules are new and provide reduced service as follows:
Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.

Loudoun County Transit has made service changes following the guidance of local, state and national health authorities to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure on its buses. These changes include face coverings and physical distancing requirements and more frequent bus cleanings. To allow for physical distancing on buses, seating capacity has been reduced to 50%. Commuter Bus Service passengers should be prepared to:
- Wear a face covering on the bus and while waiting at bus stops.
- When seated, remain six feet from other passengers who are not in their household.
- Ride for free through August 31, 2020.
To further reduce the risk of exposure, Loudoun County Transit recommends that bus riders follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, such as avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home when you are sick, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and properly washing your hands frequently.
Over the coming weeks, Loudoun County Transit will continue to monitor ridership and services for possible additional changes. Stay informed of any changes to bus service and access bus schedules at loudoun.gov/buschanges
