No matter where you go in Shirlington, sticking to the Car-Free Diet couldn’t be easier. With lots of sidewalks, tons of green space and an extensive network of ART and Metrobus routes, this urban village is extremely car-free friendly.

Once you’re there, check out the Village of Shirlington with its mix of restaurants, shops, movies and the Signature Theater. You can also explore the W&OD bike trail and the Four Mile Run Trails.

The Shirlington Bus Station, located at S. Quincy and Randolph St., provides a convenient and easy way to catch one of the many ART and Metrobuses that stop there. The ART 77 and 75 routes were recently extended to Shirlington, with the 77 running until 11:00 pm on weekdays.

If you’re a Shirlington resident, the bus can help make your commute less stressful. ART 87 goes to the Pentagon Metro, while ART 75 and 77 can take you to Metro stations along the Orange line.
