Our Shared Street Pop-Up brings together local transportation resources and neighborhood businesses to create a block party focused on access to transportation services that make a difference in your daily life. This pop-up event is also a chance to come together as a community to better understand how we all get around and how we can share our streets.
On August 22, join us on Columbia Pike at 909 S Dinwiddie St in front of Arlington Mill Community Center between 4p.m. and 7p.m. for giveaways, activities and resources to help you travel around Arlington and beyond. Here’s who we have lined up to join the fun:
BikeArlington & WalkArlington
Arlington’s Car-Free Diet
Arlington’s Car-Free Diet can help you live a car-free or car-lite lifestyle. Learn about your options and grab some giveaways while you’re at it.
Capital Bikeshare Fiesta
The energized Capital Bikeshare Fiesta team will provide everyone an opportunity to touch and feel the bicycles, discover how the bike-sharing system works, ask questions and view a giant map showing stations throughout Arlington and DC. For those who want to join the program, we will offer a special 50% DISCOUNT on all Capital Bikeshare annual memberships signing up at location.
Attendees have the chance to enjoy a free coupon for a 24-hour membership, sunglasses and giveaways for the whole family.
