Great way to explore art, libraries and a fall craft festival! DYK you can take your bike on the front of a DASHBus to get to the starting point (or from the end point) of the ride?

On Saturday, October 2, 2021 Alexandria Library will host its annual bicycle fun-ride to two Library branches in celebration of art.

It's not just about getting to/from your daily destinations...randomly selected residents will soon be receiving a survey (AlexMoves) to understand travel patterns for all types of trips (not just a daily commute). This is the 3rd time the City has conducted this survey, which is used to monitor changes and plan better for all transportation users.

If you get this survey, it will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and we encourage you to participate.

Coming in October, anyone who did not receive the initial batch of surveys will have the opportunity to provide feedback.

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.
