ATP TAKEAWAY: ATP prides itself in sharing relevant, up-to-date transportation news. Our blog is a go-to source for all things transportation in Arlington and around the DC Metro region. We strive to publish blogs that will teach you something new or strike up a conversation.

2015 was a big year for Arlington Transportation Partners. From hosting our first annual Champions Ceremony to sharing the exciting news about car2go launching in Arlington - it's been a whirlwind. So we'd be remiss if we didn't take a minute to look back at 2015's top 10 blog posts. This is a two-part series, for no other reason than we like a little bit of suspense! So sit back, grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and enjoy the bus/bike/metro ride down memory lane.

And be sure to get your read on, in case you missed any of these top blogs from the last year.
