Know the Details

Maybe you’ve been eagerly awaiting the reopening of Metrorail, or perhaps you’ve found a bus route or bike trail you enjoy. There’s always a good reason to explore the transportation options available in northern Virginia.


Join or form a vanpool and use your commuter benefits to offset the cost of parking and leasing a van, and avoid paying tolls.

Slugging is the most affordable way to travel along I-95 and I-395 during rush hour and to take advantage of HOT- and HOV-lanes to access Crystal City, Pentagon City, and the Pentagon. 

The rideshare service Via now serves in Alexandria. Download the Via app and share the ride with other passengers traveling in the same direction as you for as little $3.65.

Bike trails

The Mount Vernon Trail runs along the Potomac River to connect to Crystal City, Pentagon City, and the Pentagon, and can be accessed in Alexandria from the Eisenhower Avenue trail. Enjoy 18 miles of trail with your personal bike or by Capital Bikeshare.
