The Alexandria Transit Company (ATC) Transit Development Plan (TDP) provides a comprehensive vision of future service development, fare adjustments, and capital investments. It provides an evaluation current DASH system performance, outlines projected service levels for the following fiscal year based on the draft budget, and provides fiscally-unconstrained guidance on future service changes and capital improvements for the remaining five years of the six-year plan cycle (ex. FY25 – FY30). The TDP is updated each year by DASH staff and is subject to annual public comment as well as review, amendment and adoption by the ATC Board of Directors.

Proposed Changes Include:

  • No changes to existing service or fares in FY 2024 Baseline scenario*
  • Unfunded Service Improvement Scenario**:
    • Increase Sunday service on Lines 33 & 34 from every 60 minutes to every 30 minutes.
    • Line 31 improvements for better connections from West End to Old Town during middays and weekends.
    • Increase Line 32 off-peak and weekend service from every 60 minutes to every 30 minutes.
  • Additional bus stop improvements for better accessibility and more customer amenities.

*Baseline scenario assumes continuation of I-395 Commuter Choice grant funding for Lines 35 & 36A/B.
**Unfunded improvements would require additional funding through City Council budget process.
