Survey on Access to Tysons Metro Stations

The county is finalizing recommendations for alternative ways of accessing the future Silver Line Metro Stations instead of driving. The Tysons Metrorail Station Access Management Study team recently presented recommendations at several public meetings. The Post reported on one of the meetings in the article "Access to new Metro stations still a big question." See our earlier commentary on the article.

Tysons Metrorail Access Survey
: As part of the Access study, residents are being asked to by filling out a survey. Cyclists familiar with the area should consider filling out the survey. Here are some of the questions asked:
"Examining the map, is your place of residence or work close to a bicycle facility/route that leads to Tysons Corner?" Y/N/ "If you answered no, where would you like to see bicycle routes established that would make a bicycle trip more convenient?"

"What bicycle facilities in Tysons Corner are important if you decide to ride a bicycle there? Covered and protected bicycle racks; Bicycle racks conveniently located near the station; Safe crosswalks to access bicycle facilities"

"Please list your bicycle improvement needs by priority by numbering them 1-4: Improved or wider bike lanes; Better road and path lighting; Bicycle parking at stations; Bicycle access onto the Metrorail cars; Other (please specify)"

"The following improvements are recommended in the Tysons Bicycle Master Plan. Please prioritize your reasons for considering bicycling to the Metrorail stations by numbering them 1-4: Bike lanes/shared lanes with markings; Shared use paths; Wider road travel lanes; Bicycle crossings over the Beltway and the Dulles Toll Road; Other (please specify)"
