Bike for Good Food Rescue will be transporting fresh, locally grown food donated by our generous vendors using bicycles to area locations serving low-income and at-risk Alexandria residents on August 27.  Food rescue events are the last Saturday of the month from 11:45 am to 1:15 pm.  If you want to help out sign up at Volunteer Alexandria (type in "Bike for Good" in the Keyword Search) or email BikeforGood@alexandriava.gov for more information.  Come join the fun!


If you’re stuck with a commute that you must drive instead of taking public transport options like trains or buses, carpooling is definitely something to look into. Arlington's Mobility Lab list some of the best apps for carpool and rideshare that will help you make friends, share a ride, and  reduce your impact and green your commute!


Capital Bikeshare will now allow users to buy a single trip for $2. The move will help a lot of people get around during SafeTrack in the short term, and it's likely to encourage more riders well after Metro service is back to normal.
