City Council Votes to Terminate GEORGE Bus System
News, Transportation

The Falls Church City Council has recently voted to terminate the local GEORGE bus system, the city’s clean diesel bus. The vote was cast 6-1 and the buses will terminate at the end of September.

The council’s vote is due to the low ridership of this bus system and high subsidy levels. Councilman Robin Gardner made the motion to terminate and Ron Peppe seconded that motion. Councilman David Snyder was the one council member that was in strong opposition of the decision.
