Dear Supervisor Hudgins:
On behalf of the Reston Citizens Association, I would like to thank you for your recent actions to foster improved access to the Silver Line at the Wiehle – Reston East station. Like most Restonians, we are enthusiastic about the impending arrival of the Silver Line, and we are hopeful that your attention to the issue of station access will allow us to maximize our investment in mass transit.
In particular, we are pleased with the following action items you have brought to the Board of Supervisors that will help Restonians take advantage of Metro:
- A request for $2.2 million for improved and expanded bus service to the Wiehle – Reston East station, as well as a continuation of bus service to the Pentagon and Crystal City
- Endorsement by the Board of the need to improve access to the station from the south side
to the Department of Transportation to expedite planning for the
construction of the Soapstone crossing
Thank you again for your service and your action on behalf of the citizens of Reston. If there is any way that I or RCA can be of service in ensuring that these access improvements are implemented, please do not hesitate to ask.
President, Reston Citizens Association
