CommuterPage.com is designed to encourage the use of mass transit, carpooling and vanpooling, bicycling, walking, teleworking, and other alternatives to driving alone in the Washington, D.C. area. CommuterPage.com provides an overview of transportation options throughout the area, with a particular focus on Arlington.

Arlington, Virginia is an urban county of about 26 square miles located directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area comprises multiple local jurisdictions, transit systems, and transportation agencies in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. 

Arlington is nationally recognized for land use planning that emphasizes public transportation, bicycling, and walking. The work of ACCS to promote the use of Arlington's excellent transportation system has earned numerous national awards from TDM organizations for leadership, innovation, use of technology, customer service, and marketing.

ACCS was established in 1989 (then called the Commuter Assistance Program, or CAP) to promote and facilitate the use of transportation modes other than single-occupancy vehicles. This work is known as Transportation Demand Management (TDM). TDM is "a general term for strategies that result in more efficient use of transportation resources." (source: Victoria Transport Policy Institute.) ACCS serves people who live, work, or play in Arlington by providing programs and services to make it easier to get around without a car. More about ACCS.
