ART 87 Adventures: Route Connects Pentagon Metro to Shirlington

December 09, 2019

Take ART 87 to commute to the Pentagon Metro station, to Shirlington for dinner or to Pentagon City on the weekends to shop.

During the week, ART 87 runs between the Pentagon Metro Station and the Shirlington Bus Station via Army Navy Drive. The 87 includes several route variations during rush hours (87A, 87X and 87P) to save riders time and get them to their destinations faster. For example, during AM rush hours, the 87X runs non-stop between the Pentagon and Shirlington.

Weekday evenings and on Saturdays, service operates a little past 11:30 pm. So, whether your meeting friends or staying late at the office, you can catch the bus to take you home.

On weekends, service goes to the Pentagon City Metro station instead of the Pentagon Metro. Hop on the bus to take you to shops, restaurants and more at either end of the route!
