Bike to Work Day 7th Annual Pit Stop:

Bike to Work Day (BTWD) is scheduled for May 18th.  For the 7th year, Carlyle Council will be hosting an official BTWD Pit Stop at John Carlyle Square Park from 6:30 – 8:30 a.m.  Across the region, more than 17,000 area commuters register for one of more than eighty pit stops to show their support for bicycling as a clean, fun and healthy way to get to work.  The Carlyle Pit Stop is a unique way to showcase the Carlyle Community as a livable and bikeable destination.

 

Look for Carlyle Shuttle Route Changes

Carlyle’s weekday shuttle service will be changing its route over the summer in response to two upcoming changes.  The Federal Courthouse construction project is close to completion which will open the street in front of the Courthouse that has been closed for over a decade.  In addition, once the King St. Metro Station parking lot is closed for construction, the Carlyle shuttle will no longer be allowed to pick up or drop off passengers at the Metro entrance.  Stay tuned for more details about route changes.

SmarTrip Cards Discount

Ask your employer or residential building if they participate in Carlyle Council’s SmarTrip program.  This is an easy way to have your SmarTrip costs subsidized each month to reduce your commuting costs. 

Pop-up Events

Many Carlyle residents and workers participated in Pop-Up events last year and received free gourmet popcorn or ice cream treats for taking the annual commuter survey.  The survey results help Carlyle tailors its TMP services to encourage people to not drive alone.
