DASH Challenges Commuters to “Try Transit”
Local commuters are encouraged to try public transit during Try Transit Week, September 15-19, in coordination with the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). Pledge to Try Transit and you will be automatically entered to win a one year of transit service and a pair of round-trip tickets on Amtrak’s Northeast Regional. Visit trytransitweek.org to learn more about the event and to enter your pledge. DASH is offering three chances for you to join us in Try Transit Week activities:
1. Create a one minute video or submit your answer in writing, and answer the question: “Why Do You Take Transit?” Email your answer to DASHContest@alexandriva.gov. The winner will receive a DASH Goody Bag that includes a DASH Pass valid for one calendar month. Entries are due by September 30, 2014.
3. Join DASH at various Alexandria locations, and in Arlington at the Shirlington Transit Center, for transit give-a-ways. Enter for a chance to win a DASH Pass when you pledge to Try Transit and practice pedestrian safety!
More information on these activities is available at www.dashbus.com/.
