In just three days, DASH will launch the New DASH Network and become 100% fare free. This complete redesign of Alexandria’s bus network is intended to meet current and future transit ridership demand, and to encourage more people to use transit for more trips at more times of day.
The Alexandria Transit Company, DASH, has announced it will launch its bus service overhaul, the New DASH Network, and the start of free service, beginning September 5.
DASH introduces three new 40-foot, battery-electric Proterra buses to revenue service.
In accordance with federal law, all passengers are required to wear a face mask that covers both the nose and mouth while awaiting, boarding, traveling on or disembarking any DASH bus to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Effective Monday, February 8, passengers without a mask will not be permitted on any DASH bus.
