ART 62 Changes

December 5, 2011

December 5, 2011 -- Route and schedule changes will go into effect for ART 62 on Tuesday, January 3, 2012. Instead of traveling along Lee Highway to N. Veitch St., ART 62 will be rerouted down Kirkwood Rd. and travel through Clarendon.

A community meeting was held in November to discuss the changes with residents. Feedback was mainly positive and it was decided to implement the changes in the beginning of 2012.

The revised route will connect residents living in Waverly Hills, Cherrydale and along Lorcom Lane to Clarendon where they can visit shops, restaurants and several grocery stores including Whole Foods and the newly opened Trader Joe's. Riders will also be able to get to the Ballston, Clarendon and Court House Metro stations.

The schedule will still provide service every 30 minutes during weekday rush hours. The route along N. Utah St. will continue to be a "flag stop zone" where riders can flag down the bus anywhere along that part of the route.
