Looking for some fun activities this summer? Here’s a list of events taking place in Arlington and the ART bus routes that can take you there! Taking ART is an easy way to get around Arlington and you don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot. Plus, when you use a SmarTrip card, you get free transfers between buses within a 2-hour time period. So you can take ART to the farmers market and then hop back on to go home (or somewhere else) for free! Grab your SmarTrip card, sunscreen and walking shoes and get ready for some summer fun!
