February is Black History Month, and our friends at Commute66 are highlighting two Black inventors who have created technologies that have improved safety and connectivity for our everyday commute. From Garrett Augustus Morgan's first traffic signal, to Victor Hugo Green's Green Book, we celebrate the pioneers who have shaped the way folks travel.
Avoid the Spring Metro Shutdown
The next phase of WMATA's Platform Improvement Project starts February 13, 2021. Learn about the travel options between Rosslyn and Pentagon Metro stations through May 23, 2021. Work with Arlington Transportation Partners to make sure your employees, tenants, and residents know all their options.
Last year has taught us a lot about how we live, work, and play but more importantly, the pandemic has placed flexible work arrangements, particularly telework, in the spotlight and that is something that we believe will play a role in the way we work for the foreseeable future.,
Champions 2020 was unlike any other year. But despite everything that kept us apart, there is so much more that holds us together. Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) hosted a virtual celebration of 188 businesses, commercial and residential properties, schools, and hotels that promoted sustainable transportation in Arlington county. We thank the employers who rapidly expanded telework programs to allow employees to work safely from home, as well as the residential and commercial properties that found new and innovative ways to support residents and tenants while keeping our community safe.
The team at Commute66 has been working hard to create a new financial assistance program for businesses and properties along I-66 who have not yet explored transit benefits or have paused them during the pandemic. As Commute66 continues to provide complimentary services to businesses and properties in Northern Virginia, be on the lookout for our newest program, Sustain & Save.
