ATP Takeaway: Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) held its third annual Our Shared Street Pop-Up on August 22. This year’s event was our biggest yet with more than 140 attendees, 20 partners, and more vendors than ever.

For the third straight year, Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) welcomed more than 140 friends and neighbors to celebrate local transportation options in Arlington County and Columbia Pike in particular.

The event highlights how folks can travel around Arlington efficiently and safely using all the transportation modes at their disposal including biking, walking, transit, and dockless devices. The Mobility Experience Station also provided attendees the opportunity to safely explore different mobility options such as e-bikes and e-scooters.

Safe Streets for All

Our Shared Street Pop-Up is designed to bring the community together, break down barriers to sustainable transportation, and educate residents about their options. Not only are residents encouraged to re-think their commute, but they are also empowered to use these options more frequently.

This year’s event also focused on equity in transportation and highlighted transportation resources that allow everyone to use transportation options safely and efficiently around Arlington.

With the support of Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS), partners, and vendors, Our Shared Street Pop-Up will continue to stress the importance—and our responsibility—to safely share the street with everyone regardless of our favored transportation option.

What’s Next

This event would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors: Lime, Dorchester Apartments, Meridian at Courthouse Commons, and Oakland apartments. Thank you for your support!
