Commuter-Friendly Communities


Commuter Friendly Communities Go Great Places

Commuter Friendly Communities is a Fairfax County program which recognizes communities that have gone the extra mile to provide their tenants material or facilities which provide them alternate modes of transportation to their desired destinations.

Each quarter, Fairfax County highlights efforts of residential sites which have obtained a new level of excellence of Gold, Silver, or Platinum, by visiting their site and providing them with an official certificate of achievement for reducing vehicles on the road. Bronze level sites will get recognition by having their information added to Fairfax County's website and receive guidance to move up levels.
