Get on your bike and ride! Each year, in recognition of Bike to Work Day, thousands of area commuters ride their bikes to work to demonstrate that bicycling is a healthy, practical, economical and environmentally friendly way to get to work. On Friday, May 19, the D.C. metro area will see more than 13,000 commuters ride their bikes.  Register to drop by one of the City’s four pit stops (located at City Hall/Market Square, Carlyle, Mark Center and Del Ray) and receive a free t-shirt, refreshments and a chance to win special prizes on May 19. 


Sometimes the hardest part of waiting for your bus is just not knowing when it will arrive. DASH's new Tracker technology can put that uncertainty to rest. Now you can locate your bus and know with up-to-the-minute accuracy when it will arrive at your stop.


CarpoolNow, a new rideshare app brought to you by Commuter Connections that gives commuters in our area the ability to share a ride on-demand and in real-time, instantly, connecting commuters offering a ride with those seeking a ride.  It's free, safe, and easy to use.  App is available for download in Apple iTunes and Google Play stores and soon in BlackBerry World.
