Updated September 18, 2015

Arlington Transit has proposed taking over a portion of the current Metrobus 3A route with a new ART bus route, the ART 55. ART 55 would replace the portion of the 3A route that starts at the East Falls Church Metro station and runs down Lee Highway to the Rosslyn Metro station.

The proposed ART 55 route would use the same route, operate the same hours, and serve the same bus stops as the current 3A route.

The proposed ART 55 schedule would provide weekday service every 15 minutes during the day and 30 minutes in the evenings. Service on Saturdays would be every 20 minutes and every 30 minutes on Sundays.

If the proposal to replace the 3A is approved by the WMATA Board of Directors, ART 55 would start service Sunday, December 13, 2015.
