Arlington Transit Returns to Full Bus Service

August 16, 2021

Update 9/29/21: Arlington Transit returned to full bus service on Tuesday, September 7. ART 53, 61, 62 and 74 resumed operating after being out of service since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Once the four rush-hour-only routes are reinstated, Arlington Transit will be operating full service with no restrictions on seating capacity. Riders are required to wear face masks when riding ART buses and any public transportation.

The ART 72 route will continue to operate on a modified weekday schedule (PDF).

Due to construction at the Ballston Metro station, the ART 53 and 62 bus stop will be located near the Metro elevator on Fairfax Drive before N Stuart Street (see map below).
