Improving Bus Serivce: Study Funding on Agenda Tuesday

Fairfax City Council to consider $73,500 for CUE/George Mason University Transit Study. Plus, city manager's budget presentation.

A new transit study may provide data to improve bus service in the City of Fairfax and George Mason University.

The Fairfax City Council will hold a public hearing Tuesday regarding the proposed municipal contribution: $73,500 from the general fund.

The council meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in Council Chambers at Fairfax City Hall, 10455 Armstrong St.

The city is paying half of the expenses for a transportation planning consultant, in hopes of improving transit services in the City of Fairfax CUE bus system. The contractor will also consider improvements to GMU's shuttle system.

"This study will examine usage patterns for both the CUE and Mason Shuttle routes that serve the campus and Metrorail station to identify potential improvements that would result in the reduction in service overlaps, cost savings and ridership increases for both systems," according to a memo to council from City Manager Robert Sisson.

The City Council will also receive a presentation on the 2015 budget.
