I hope to get photos and videos of Fairfax Connector's 2007 New Flyer D40LFRs on the newest Fairfax Connector routes such as the 615, 901, 924, 937, and 954 before these D40LFRs are all gone.

Don't forget the 2007 D35LFRs! All of them are based from Reston-Herndon.

Interesting to see that Fairfax Connector now has intercounty bus routes such as the 924, 952, 954, and 983 to parts of Loudoun County after phase 2 of the Washington Metro Silver Line opened.

Also, Loudoun County Transit bus routes to Reston Town Center and Innovation Center stations such as the 312, 320, 321, 322, and 323 are intercounty bus routes as well.

Saw them on Saturday. Likely replacements for the D35LFRs

There is even a possibility for them to be on some of the Reston RIBS routes because when I checked bustracker for Fairfax Connector, some fleet numbers for other New Flyer XD35s showed up on these routes.

Buses can be used on any route possible. I've seen 40fts on the RIBS before and I've seen 3082-3087 on the 301 once.

New Route 660 will replace Route 644 on February 6, 2023. In addition to existing stops at the Centreville (Stone Rd) Park & Ride and Vienna Metro Station, Route 660 will serve new stops at Fairfax County Government Center and Tysons Metro Station. Route 644 began service on June 29, 2009, and at that time, became the first express (non-stop) route that served the I-66 corridor with a $1.25 (SmarTrip)/$1.35 (cash) base fare.

the 644 is basically extended to Tysons and renamed into the 660 lol

There’s up to 7892. Idk if theirs anymore pats that. Right now i saw 7889-7892 entered service the last few days but idk if it’s a XD35 or XD40 but it seems to be the later

That's very strange if true. I'd would have given the XD35s a different number series ( probably #7600s) and have all the XD40s in the #7800s and #7900s (eventually, I hate how FFC numbers their buses. Totally disorganized (ART too), both can learn a thing or two from DASH bus).
