Winter Weather Service

December 15, 2011

December 15, 2011 -- It's that time of year again when snow starts making an appearance in the weather forecast and traveling conditions can be unpredictable. Make sure you're up-to-date on all your winter weather travel information for the ART bus before heading out the door.

ART's Severe Weather Policy is posted up on the Arlington Transit website and provides information about service levels, snow route maps for each ART bus route and information for receiving service alerts.

When weather impacts service, ART has three levels of service operation:

  • Limited: Modified Routes/ Some Delays in Service
  • Severe: Greatly Modified Routes/ Limited Service/ Expect Delays (some routes could be canceled)
  • No Service: Route Canceled

Please note that routes may be operating on different levels of service depending on road and traffic conditions. For example, due to road conditions ART 75 could be operating at a severe level of service while ART 41 is operating at a limited service level.

To get the most up-to-date information about ART bus service, sign-up to have ART Alerts sent to you via text message or email. Follow ART on Facebook and Twitter where up-to-date service information will be posted. You can also call customer service at 703-228-RIDE (7433) and visit to find out about ART service. 

Be prepared ahead of time and make sure you know where to find the information you need. You never know when the next big storm may hit!
