Transit Signal Priority allows vehicles, such as buses, to get through traffic signals quicker by communicating with the traffic signal to alert the signal that they are approaching. The signal will either stay green longer, or if it is red, shorten the red light. The goal is to keep buses on schedule, improve travel times, and make buses a more viable option for commuters.

Check out the alexandriava.gov/116073 for more information.

Join us in celebrating our heroes for Transit Team Appreciation Day by thanking your Bus Operator or another transit team member on March 18. Because of them, we can!
