Let ART 87 Be Your Weekend Ride!

June 24, 2016

 Let ART Be Your Weekend Ride!

Continuing ART’s weekend series, today we’ll talk about the ART 87 route and where it can take you on Saturday and Sunday. Like ART 42, the ART 87 route changes a little bit on weekends and goes to Pentagon City instead of the Pentagon Metro. ART 87 runs every 30 minutes on weekends and also travels to Shirlington.

Here are some of the places you can visit and things you can do when you ride ART 87 on the weekend:

The Village at Shirlington has an array of restaurants and shops to choose from. Grab lunch or dinner and then go see a movie or catch a show at the Signature Theater. There are also parks nearby to enjoy, coffee shops and a grocery store. The Shirlington Bus Station serves as a transfer point where you can get on buses going to DC, Alexandria and other parts of Arlington. Learn more about Shirlington. 

Pentagon City
On weekends ART 87 travels to Pentagon City, providing an easy connection to the Fashion Center at Pentagon City and Pentagon Row. While there you can go shopping, dine at restaurants and play at Virginia Highlands Park. During the week, ART 87 goes to the Pentagon Metro. Learn more about Pentagon City.

See the ART 87 weekend route map below to find out where ART 87 can take you and view the ART 87 Saturday and Sunday schedules. Check back soon to learn about ART's other weekend routes and all the places ART can take you on the weekends.
