ALEXANDRIA, VA – DASH Bus and the City of Alexandria announced that the operation of the King Street Trolley will resume on Monday, July 5. Free daily service along King Street in Old Town Alexandria will return with the following service adjustments:
- Trolley service will run from the King Street Metro station to Alexandria City Hall’s Market Square, and will run every 15 minutes from 11 in the morning to 11 at night, seven days per week, including holidays. This simplified schedule will make the trolley more accessible to residents, workers and visitors.
- A new trolley stop will be established at the southeast corner of Market Square on North Fairfax Street to serve passengers accessing the Potomac River waterfront. Due to the closure of the 100 block of King Street, the stops at Union Street and Lee Street will no longer be served.
- Customer and employee safety remain a top priority as trolley service resumes after nearly 15 months of suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still requires all passengers and operators wear masks on public transportation, face masks are required to board and ride the King Street Trolley. To ensure the safety of passengers and operators, DASH trolleys are equipped with plexiglass driver barriers and face masks are provided as needed.
