I really appreciate the in-depth knowledge and commitment you have. That of Rob Whitfield too. I am very hopeful that Dulles II will be good for
Loudoun County once it is operating.
Like you, I know that BRT and other transit forms can serve us well. I think the bigger challenge, over the years ahead, will be to provide transit that serves the greater Loudoun area and other areas that are underserved by quality transit. BRT can be very effective (even without a committed guide-way) in providing cost-efficient transit. It is also a good “starter” for possible light rail on the same path later.
As I speak with folks in Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, Clarke, and Frederick Counties, I know there is growing interest in transit. In Berryville, there is interest in having MARC come down from Brunswick. In Winchester, there is interest in having service to the east (and perhaps with MARC from Brunswick and Martinsburg also). The existing North-South rail lines in Berryville and Winchester can serve many others in Virginia too. I am connected with folks in West Virginia that want to see transit expansion too.

Bob, you should consider starting a Herndon focused blog. I like you focus on the issues that actually matter and think they should get a wider audience.
