Transit Development Plan

Transit Development Plan

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.

The FY 2024 – FY 2029 ATC Transit Development Plan was approved by the ATC Board of Directors on May 10, 2023 after a public comment period in March and April.

Highlights of the plan include:

  • DASH will increase Sunday service on Lines 33 from every 60 minutes to every 30 minutes.  This route operates from King Street Metro to Potomac Yard via Del Ray and Arlandria.
  • Additional unfunded improvements for Lines 30, 31, 32 and 34 will be deferred and proposed for implementation again in FY 2025.
  • Additional bus stop improvements for better accessibility and more customer amenities.
