ALEXANDRIA, VA-The FY25-FY34 Alexandria Transit Strategic Plan (ATSP) was formally adopted by the Alexandria Transit Company’s Board of Directors at its meeting on April 10, 2024.  The ATSP provides a comprehensive vision of future service development, fare adjustments, and capital investments for transit services within the City of Alexandria. It is updated yearly and is based on requirements outlined by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and is subject to a comprehensive public outreach process.  The final version of the ATSP document is available at dashbus.com/strategicplan and is summarized below:

  • Due to budget constraints, the unfunded improvements that had been proposed on Lines 32, 34 and 31 will not be implemented in FY 2025 and will be deferred to a future year.
  • Based on community feedback, DASH staff will be evaluating opportunities to provide additional DASH service to Mount Vernon Avenue in Arlandria in the coming year. Any service changes resulting from this evaluation would be implemented in FY 2026.
  • The potential reduction to Line 104 service, which would reduce the route from every 30 minutes to every 60 minutes, is still under consideration by Alexandria City Council as part of its annual budget review process. For more information about the proposed budget for fiscal year 2025, please visit alexandriava.gov/budget.
