    For those of you who take the Tysons Express bus to Tyson's Corner, could you please tell me if the bus is usually packed like the DC buses? I am considering taking the bus to Tyson's once in a while, but I'd like to know the situation with the bus so I know how far in advance I should wait for the bus to get a seat. Any advice? Thanks!

    I take the 7:43 in the morning and its never been full. I doubt the other times are any busier.

    Where does the bus depart from, I recently moved to the area and doing the route 7 thing gets a little tiresome.

    Anyone take it to the West Park Transit center and connect to an East Tysons Shuttle? I need to go to Capital One and just wondered if many others take this route and if the transfers are easy or more of a hassle.

    I took the bus this Monday for the first time. I didn't need to use the shuttle bus, but from my observation, half of the people on the bus got off and took the shuttle, so it looks like many people commute in that direction. The shuttle has already been waiting there by the time the Loudoun bus pulled in, so you don't need to wait for it to come. In the afternoon commute, you might need to wait a little for the bus to come in from the other stops in Tysons. The bus was near full on Monday both in the morning and in the afternoon, so it looks like people may be using the bus more often now. I also took the 7:43 one in the morning.

    I work for Cap One and I have never taken the bus, but there is a morning and afternoon bus that leaves and picks you up from the Cap 1 building. The main desk has the info
