Metrobus 3A - Lee Highway-Falls Church

Metrobus is the Washington, D.C. area's regional bus system, operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Within Arlington, Metrobus is supplemented by ART to provide bus service throughout the County.

WMATA provides Metrobus timetables, with route maps, in Portable Document Format (PDF).

Try WMATA's Trip Planner to plan point-to-point trips using Metrobus, Metrorail, ART and other local bus systems. 

On November 19, 2015, the WMATA Board of Directors approved replacing the Arlington portion of the Metrobus 3A route with the ART 55 route. The new ART 55 route will start service on Sunday, December 13. More information and the schedule can be found on the ART 55 page.

Metrobus 3A operates along Lee Highway between Rosslyn and East Falls Church, continuing into Fairfax County to Annandale.

Not all bus stops are shown on the map. Icons on the map represent schedule "timepoints" – the stops that are listed in the printed and online schedules for the route. Clicking the icons will show upcoming scheduled arrival times for that timepoint.

There are additional bus stops between the timepoints, usually about two blocks apart. Look for Metrobus and ART bus stop signs along the route. The bus stop signs will have route numbers indicating which routes serve each stop.
