ART 55 schedule and route (printer-friendly PDF)
The following bus stops are not served by ART 55 on Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 9:00 am:

These bus stops may show up on RealTime, but will not be served weekdays from 7 am - 9 am. During morning rush hour, ART 55 will take a detour down Quinn St. to avoid traffic on Lee Highway and get to the Rosslyn Metro station faster. These two bus stops get little to no use during AM rush. Regular service will resume for these stops after 9 am.
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.
ART RealTime arrival estimates are also available for ART buses that are less than 45 minutes away. 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.
