On July 28, DASH riders will be able to travel across town on the new AT9 route! The AT9 will provide crosstown connections between Mark Center, Southern Towers, Northern Virginia Community College, Bradlee Shopping Center, Shirlington Transit Center in Arlington, Parkfairfax, Arlandria and Potomac Yard. The AT9 will offer Alexandria and Arlington residents new access to shops, restaurants, and vital transit connections between DASH and Metrobus and ART service.
In coordination with making the city more bicycle friendly, the City’s Local Motion program is also teaming up with the Washington Area Bicyclists Association (WABA) this spring and summer to offer adult bicycle education classes. Classes are for a wide range of skill sets, from beginner to advanced. Beginner classes teach participants how to ride a bicycle, and more advanced 3 hour classes teach bike handling skills, and how to ride safely in traffic, and rules of the road.
Street Smart is an annual public education, awareness and behavior change campaign in Washington, D.C. region. The campaign uses radio, newspaper, transit advertising, public awareness efforts, and added law enforcement to respond to the challenges of pedestrian and bicycle safety. In addition to the region-wide awareness efforts, Alexandria conducts pedestrian and bicycle trainings for all DASH bus drivers, does targeted enforcement events at problem intersections in coordination with the Street Smart campaign, provides safety information at Local Motion events, and posts safety messages in English and Spanish on DASH buses.
