DASH Announces New AT9 Crosstown Route in Alexandria

DASH bus

Launches on July 28!

On July 28, DASH riders will be able to travel across town on the new AT9 route! The AT9 will provide crosstown connections between Mark Center, Southern Towers, Northern Virginia Community College, Bradlee Shopping Center, Shirlington Transit Center in Arlington, Parkfairfax, Arlandria and Potomac Yard.

The AT9 will offer Alexandria and Arlington residents new access to shops, restaurants, and vital transit connections between DASH and Metrobus and ART service.

The new DASH service will dip into areas not currently served by DASH, including King and Beauregard Streets, Kenwood Avenue and Valley Drive, as well as provide more direct transit access between destinations without having to go into Old Town.

The AT9 service will operate weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every 30 minutes, and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. with a frequency of every 60 minutes.

If anyone who owns a car takes this bus from or through Parkfairfax, I’ll be shocked.

My wife and I own one car, and will soon be living in the Park Center area. I am sure I will use this on occasion. It will make our carlite lifestyle more viable.

Naturally households that have one car per driver won’t use it, because all the places it goes have free parking and there is no time savings over driving.
