Major Changes to Bus Routes in Alexandria Could be Coming Soon.
DASH wants to hear from you!
Over the last year, the City of Alexandria, DASH and other regional transit partners have developed two different bus network concepts as part of the Alexandria Transit Vision (ATV) Plan. The public is invited to provide feedback on the bus network concepts this winter through a variety of engagement activities. The purpose of the ATV Plan, which began in 2018, is to redraw the city’s bus network to better serve current and future transit demand, and to better reflect community priorities for transit service.
The ATV Plan involves three rounds of civic engagement to ensure that the concerns and ideas of the Alexandria community are heard, recognized and incorporated into the development of a future transit network. The first engagement round was conducted in fall 2018 to define community transit priorities. The second round is being held this winter to receive input on the transit network concepts. Based on the input, final recommendations will be made later this spring and will be brought back to the public through a third engagement round in early summer.
