Metrobus 16ACE – Columbia Pike

Metrobus is the Washington, D.C. area's regional bus system, operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Within Arlington, Metrobus is supplemented by ART to provide bus service throughout the County.

WMATA provides Metrobus timetables, with route maps, in Portable Document Format (PDF).

Try WMATA's Trip Planner to plan point-to-point trips using Metrobus, Metrorail, ART and other local bus systems. 

Metrobus Route 16ABEJP, a Pike Ride route, operates along Columbia Pike between Pentagon Metro station and Annandale, seven days a week. An extension to the route crosses the Potomac via the 14th Street Bridge, and serves Archives, Federal Triangle, and Smithsonian Metro stations. On the Virginia side of the river, this route serves Annandale, Culmore, Baileys Crossroads, and Pentagon City.

Not all bus stops are shown on the map. Icons on the map represent schedule "timepoints" – the stops that are listed in the printed and online schedules for the route. Clicking the icons will show upcoming scheduled arrival times for that timepoint.

There are additional bus stops between the timepoints, usually about two blocks apart. Look for Metrobus and ART bus stop signs along the route. The bus stop signs will have route numbers indicating which routes serve each stop.
