What about RIBS? There's no mention of it in the proposals at all, as far as I can find. The proposed routes leave several low-income neighborhoods with next to nothing for bus service, so I'm hopeful there's a plan to continue the RIBS service, and maybe even make some of the one-way loops go both ways?

I was wondering the same thing about RIBS. And the one -way loops going both ways would be such an improvement! I hope that happens too.

Yes, thanks for the info. Not surprised that there are no meetings in south Reston. Wow, the 557 will be packed by the time it reaches us from the Herndon-Monroe P&R. Hope that they thought this one through.

I wondered about RIBS too. I hope they improve those routes as well.

I also wondered about the cost? Will my daily commuting cost change?
