[CANCELLED] Joint Meeting of the Pedestrian Advisory Committee (PAC) and Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) @ Navy Annex
Apr 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Update: this meeting has been postponed to a later date, to be determined.

April 28, 2020 will be a special joint meeting of the PAC, BAC, and Parks and Rec Commission.

The PAC advises the County Board and the County Manager on the implementation of the pedestrian element of the Master Transportation Plan and other matters the committee deems important to advocate for the needs of pedestrians in Arlington.

The committee is made up of volunteers who keep the County focused on making Arlington a better place to walk — from the high-rise canyons of Rosslyn, Ballston and Crystal City to the leafy residential areas of north, south, and west Arlington.

Meetings are typically held every second Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Members of the public are invited to join any meeting.

Walk, Bike & Roll to School Day @ Arlington Public Schools

Mark your calendar! BikeArlington and WalkArlington are joining Arlington County Public Schools on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 to celebrate the annual Walk, Bike & Roll to School Day and encourage students to use active transportation to get to school. We’ll be at this year’s focus school.

This international event is designed to encourage students to bike, walk, or roll to school while teaching about the health and environmental benefits of active transportation. Walk, Bike and Roll to School Day is also an opportunity to raise awareness about safe routes to schools and the importance of bicycle and pedestrian safety in neighborhoods and around our schools.

APS schools and students are encouraged to walk the walk all year long by adopting weekly walking and biking promotions like “Walking Wednesdays” and “Foot Fridays,” supporting formation of Walking School Buses, Bike Trains and other creative commutes, and sharing important pedestrian and bike safety information for all ages.
