New ART Light Maintenance Facility Open

September 26, 2017

Bus Cutting RibbonOn Tuesday, September 26, Arlington County celebrated the completion of the new Arlington Transit (ART) Light Maintenance Facility that's located at 3201 S. Eads Street. A special bus-drive-through ribbon cutting was done. The new two-story, state-of-the-art facility includes a light-duty maintenance bay, bus wash and a compressed natural gas fueling station.

ART is growing and provided more than 3.4 million rides on 17 bus routes over the past year. Fleet and service expansion is planned for the next 10 years. The facility provides crucial storage space for 25 of 65 buses, fueling, maintenance and wash services for the entire ART fleet.

New ART Facility“Finding space for County services is one of the biggest challenges facing our growing community,” said Arlington County Board Chair Jay Fisette. “The opening of this multi-purpose facility represents our investment in the next generation of growth for our bus system – and represents one of our success stories.”

Washing and fueling services for ART buses had been contracted from an adjacent Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) facility at a higher cost and with restricted hours. The new facility now provides more flexibility for how ART fuels and maintains its vehicles.
