Service AlertsART bus stop ID and real-time numbers to change starting 4/18: Beginning the week of April 18th, ART bus stop ID and real-time numbers will change from five digits to seven digits. The change will occur over several weeks as crews replace the numbers on the bus stop signs and flags. Until the changeover is complete, riders can enter either the current five-digit or new seven-digit stop numbers into ART’s Real Time information page on the ART website. The new seven-digit regional ID numbers will match the numbers in WMATA’s Metrobus system. This new system will provide improved real-time information to both ART dispatchers and the public. The change also means that the arrival by phone system will be unavailable until the software for the new system is updated.

Columbia Pike Construction to Impact ART 41, 45 & 75 Bus Routes Starting August 3

July 15, 2020

Starting Monday, August 3, construction at the intersection of S. Dinwiddie St and Columbia Pike will require temporary changes to ART Routes 41, 45 and 75 and bus stops in that area. Construction is expected to last 3 – 5 days.

During this period, buses will not be able to make left turns at the intersection of S. Dinwiddie St and Columbia Pike. As a result, ART 41 and 45 will layover on northbound S. Dinwiddie St next to the Arlington Mill Community Center and then run counter-clockwise through the Arlington Mill neighborhood. ART 75 will not operate service in the Arlington Mill neighborhood. Changes to the various ART routes are described below.

 

ART 41

ART 41 will operate counter-clockwise through the Arlington Mill neighborhood, in the opposite direction that it currently operates. As a result, it will only serve bus stops across the street from where stops are currently located. Existing stops will be closed during this time. Temporary stops will be installed along S. Greenbrier St to accommodate two ART 41 stops along that street. See map for more detail.

ART 41 will layover on northbound S. Dinwiddie St next to the Arlington Mill Community Center before running the route counter-clockwise along S. Dinwiddie St and 7th Rd S. Buses will leave 10 minutes later than the time shown on the schedule for the S. Dinwiddie St and Columbia Pike bus stop.

 

ART 45 

ART 45 will operate counter-clockwise through the Arlington Mill neighborhood, in the opposite direction that it currently operates. The route will only serve bus stops across the street from where stops are currently located along S. Dinwiddie St and a portion of 8th Rd S. Existing stops will be closed during this time. The route will then turn on to S Greenbrier St and then left onto Columbia Pike to continue toward Rosslyn. See map for more detail.

The following bus stops along the second half of 8th Rd S, S Carlin Springs Rd and a portion of Columbia Pike will not be served:

  • 8th Rd S, EB @ S Greenbriers St
  • 8th Rd S, EB @ S Harrison St
  • 8th Rd S, EB @ S Carlin Springs Rd
  • S Carlin Springs Rd, NB @ Columbia Pike
  • Columbia Pike, WB @ S Jefferson St

Riders along this section of the route can board ART 45 on Greenbrier St between 8th Rd S and Columbia Pike or board the ART 75 bus along Carlin Springs Rd going toward Columbia Pike and transfer to ART 45 at the Columbia Pike @ S Greenbrier St bus stop (#41227).

ART 45 will layover on northbound S. Dinwiddie Street next to the Arlington Mill Community Center before running the route counter-clockwise along S. Dinwiddie St. Buses will leave 10 minutes later than the time shown on the schedule for the S. Dinwiddie St and Columbia Pike bus stop.

 

ART 75

During construction, ART 75 will not operate along S Dinwiddie St and 7th Rd S. All bus stops along those streets will not be serviced by ART 75. Instead, the route will operate along Columbia Pike and Carlin Springs Rd and serve the ART bus stops along those streets.

Some ART 75 bus stops along S. Dinwiddie St and 7th Rd S will be served by ART 41 and 45 but not by ART 75.

ART 75 riders needing to travel to Ballston from the Arlington Mill neighborhood can take ART 41 from the following bus stops:

  • S Dinwiddie St, NB @ 9th St S
  • S Dinwiddie St, NB @ 8th Rd S
  • 7th Rd S, WB @ Park Condos
  • 7th Rd S, WB @ S Florida St

Riders can also board ART 41 at the bus stops listed above and then transfer to ART 75 at Columbia Pike @ S Greenbrier St (stop #41227) to continue along the regular ART 75 route.

ART 75 riders needing to travel to Shirlington from the Arlington Mill neighborhood can take ART 41 from the stops listed below and then transfer to ART 75 at Columbia Pike @ S Greenbrier St (stop #41227).
