Statement in Response to Tysons Metro Station Renaming
Tysons Partnership commends the recent vote of the Metro Board of Directors to rename Tysons Corner station to “Tysons.” This is an important step forward in the effort to unify the Tysons brand and foster a cohesive sense of place across our rapidly urbanizing neighborhoods. We also want to express appreciation to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors for its foresight in requesting the change.
The new station name reflects our new urban, transit-oriented reality, as envisioned in the County’s Comprehensive Plan for Tysons. We also applaud the Board of Supervisors’ recent approval of a name change at the Tysons Metro station stop at McLean to incorporate “Capital One Hall,” Tysons’ soon-to-arrive major entertainment venue.
The four Metro stations in Tysons serve as a major connector for the Tysons community and the region, bringing people to jobs, residences, and amenities.
We remain committed to Tysons and its evolution into an urban district serving as the County’s economic engine and a leader for the region.
