We at DASH understand that Coronavirus has brought unprecedented change and uncertainty to our riders, our community, our state, our country and the world. Even as more businesses reopen and people return to work, many things remain uncertain.
However, we want to let you know that some things are constant, such as the DASH commitment to providing reliable and safe public transit in Alexandria so that our community can keep moving through this pandemic.
To this end, please help us keep Alexandria moving safely forward by taking our Coronavirus Ridership survey. Completed surveys will be entered into a drawing for multiple $50 VISA Gift Cards. We will use the feedback received through this survey to inform our decisions and policies as we continue to combat COVID-19. The survey will stop accepting responses on Sunday, August 9.
The safety and health of our passengers, operators and community continues to be our highest priority. DASH continues to monitor daily ridership so that we can safely accommodate increasing passenger demand. We will continue to listen to and follow the advice of our local and state public health and safety officials. The additional procedures and precautions we put in place at the beginning of this pandemic will remain in effect until further notice, including requiring masks for all passengers, disinfecting our buses and facility, maximizing rear-door boarding and the temporary suspension of fare collection.
