Transit Facilities

Transit stop and station types can range from simple bus stops to full-size stations and transit centers. The type of facility depends on a number of parameters, including transit service mode, passenger demand, surrounding land use and available right-of-way.

Arlington’s Bus Stop Guidelines and Standards Manual (PDF) is the guiding document which Arlington County uses when evaluating and implementing the design, function and placement of bus stops within the County. The manual outlines the set of design criteria and the minimum requirements to provide accessible safe and efficient bus stops.
