ART 43 Bus Stop Relocation at VRE Station 

Also starting Saturday June 18, the ART 43 bus stop near the VRE station entrance will be relocated to the Transitway station at 18th Street & Crystal Drive. This is to provide safe and convenient access between ART, Metro and VRE services during the SafeTrack Maintenance Project. Bus operators will only serve the new stop location. The new ART 43 schedule is designed to allow time to walk between the Transitway stop and the VRE station. Note: the ART 92 bus stop will remain near the VRE station entrance.

Please Note: Bus schedules are subject to traffic, weather and other conditions. Please be patient as these conditions are out of the control of the bus driver and ART. Also remember to allow sufficient time to make transfers to and from other services.
