Those looking to gauge their next home purchase, or the value of their existing home, based in part on bus routes feeding into the new Metrorail Silver Line serving McLean and Tysons Corner on out to Reston due to start service by December should note the in-person and online forums taking place this week.

Fairfax County is holding six public meetings and one "Ask Fairfax!" online chat to discuss its proposed bus service plan. Twelve new routes are in the works, along with the redirection of 24 existing routes and the elimination of six routes.

This latest revision incorporates many changes requested by riders since the original proposal was made public in January. The comprehensive updates are to be discussed at each of the seven meetings starting tonight (Monday, April 15) through Wednesday, April 24.

It appears the changes the County decides may not take effect until December. That means getting to the newly opened stations may be complicated

Here's the schedule. The focus at each will be the service changes planned near the location at each meeting.
