Tysons TransportationWith a goal to turn Tysons into an urban center by 2050, the area is under major upheaval, and we are already starting to see some of the changes, such as improved transportation options. Whether you prefer driving, public transport or cycling, there is something for you!
The Silver Line began operation in 2014, with four stops in the Tysons area - McLean, Tysons Corner, Greensboro and Spring Hill. It offers easy access into Arlington and D.C., and transfers to Reagan airport and Alexandria. We love taking the metro because not only is it friendly to the environment, it allows you to relax on your morning commute with a book, newspaper or even a quick nap! Easiest to access from our Nouvelle and Ovation residences is the Tysons Corner stop. Visit WMATA to plan your trip and Silver Line Metro for more information on the various stops in Tysons.
Tysons is served by three bus lines - Fairfax Connector, PRTC and Metrobus - taking commuters around Tysons, and to Reston, Lorton, Woodbridge and more! You can even take a Metrobus to a Metro Rail Station. Ovation and Nouvelle are just mere minutes from several bus stops. For schedules, check the websites directly:
Travel by car is the most popular transportation option in Tysons. Fortunately, free parking is abound, at both Tysons Corner Center and Tysons Galleria as well as at many shopping centers and restaurants. If you’re looking to carpool, to save on gas and gain access to HOV lanes, here is a great website that links up commuters- Commuter Connections.
Fun, healthy and earth friendly? Biking is on the rise, and for good reason. Tysons is dedicated to being a bike-friendly destination. Several roads have dedicated bike trails, while others are designated ‘bike friendly,’ so you can cycle to your favorite local restaurants and shops! You can find bike racks at many locations in the area, and if you like to bike to the bus or metro, WMATA offers bike and ride options! Ovation and Nouvelle have secure indoor bike racks for residents. Whether you like to bike to work or for pleasure, here are several handy links to help you navigate with your bike:
