ART 25th Anniversary Proclamation

November 14, 2023

November marks the month that Arlington Transit moves into its 25th year of service in Arlington County.  During the county board meeting the proclamation was read which in turn marks the beginning of activities to come celebrating ART service to the community.  

Some highlights from the proclamation about ART’s value to the community:

  • ART started in 1998 with one route and now has 16 routes and over 2 million annual riders
  • ART connects residents with neighborhoods and meaningful transit connections
  • ART is an excellent, green (pun intended) travel solution that helps people reduce the carbon footprint generated by single-occupancy vehicles/personal cars
  • All buses are ADA-accessible which makes ART a valuable asset that allows our senior residents and people with disabilities to have independent mobility.
