New Commuter Lot on I-66

July 16, 2013

I just wanted to inform you that as of Monday, July 8th, VDOT opened a new commuter lot at Cushing Road and I-66 near the Prince William Parkway. The new 433-space park-and-ride lot can be accessed from Balls Ford Road via Cushing Road

The new lot features a bus loop, a shelter for pick-ups and drop-offs, a new sidewalk from Cushing Road to access the lot, and a new traffic light at Balls Ford Road and Cushing Road. It also includes lighting, crosswalks, benches, bicycle racks and lockers.

The lot will allow commuters to easily access eastbound I-66 with a direct on-ramp. It is only open from the hours of 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and is restricted to buses and vehicles with two or more people.

In addition, OmniRide is providing bus service to the lot on its Linton Hall Metro Direct route to the West Falls Church Metro station. Direct service between the lot and Washington, D.C. is scheduled to begin this fall.
