Carfree Mobility Forum

Charlie Dyer (L, FABB) and Mike Coyle, Sully District Office
A small but interested group from Transition Centreville/Clifton heard from FABB members and Mike Coyle of the Sully District office speak about getting around Fairfax without a car. Mike discussed the status of the Dulles Rail project, access to the Vienna Metro station, and the I-66 Multimodal Transportation and Environmental Study.

Extending Metrorail or creating bus rapid transit are possible options for transit along I-66. Possible station locations include Fairfax Corner and the Stringfellow Rd Park and Ride lot. A paved multi use trail along I-66 would also greatly benefit residents.

FABB members Bruce Wright, Charlie Dyer, and Fionnuala Quinn discussed bicycling as a transportation option. Bruce gave an overview of FABB, discussed why bicycling is a simple solution to many of our societal problems, and the need for better bicycle education. Charlie gave a summary of what gear you need to be able to use a bicycle for transportation, and Fionnuala gave a brief history of bicycling in the U.S. and the role that citizen participation can play in improving the design of our roads. If you would like FABB to give a presentation to your group, contact chairman@fabb-bikes.org.
