Bus Stop Accessibility & Amenities Program

What's New:

The City of Alexandria has recently installed four new bus shelters as part of Alexandria’s Transportation & Environmental Services Department’s bus shelter replacement project.  New bus shelters have been installed at Mt Vernon Ave and Reed Ave, Duke Street at W Taylor Run Pkwy, 301 N Beauregard Street, and 301 N Ripley Street.  The new bus shelters feature following amenities:

  • Modern design
  • ADA accessibility
  • Bench seating with backrest
  • Ability to display real time transit information on LED screens
  • Solar or electric illumination
  • Ability to display bus maps and wayfinding information

Over the next three years, the City will replace over forty (40) Metrobus shelters and bus shelter concrete pads which were installed in the 1970s through grants provided by the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration. For more information on this project, please contact Pierre Holloman, Project Manager, at 703.746.4080 or via email at pierre.holloman@alexandriava.gov
