The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC) has scheduled a series of meetings in November to determine the best transit option for the 14-mile corridor between Tysons Corner and Alexandria, Va.At the meetings, the commission will share ridership and cost projections for three modes of transit: light rail, bus rapid transit and enhanced bus service. Additionally, NVTC officials will explain the alignments under consideration.The meetings will take place Nov. 4, 10 and 18.The NVTC has been conducting the Route 7 Corridor Transit Study to assess the travel needs along the route and provide potential recommendations to improve mobility, according to the project's website.The study is being carried out in two phases. During the first phase, the study team assessed existing issues and identified potential transit options to improve accessibility along the corridor.The study's second phase, which is currently in progress, will assess these transit options based on a slew of factors, including public and stakeholder involvement, viability of transit in the corridor and a financial analysis of capital and operating costs, NVTC officials said.
