ART 55 East Falls Church – Lee Highway – Rosslyn

ART 55 connects the East Falls Church and Rosslyn Metro stations via Lee Highway. The route is a good commuting option during the week and also provides weekend service. This route replaces the Arlington portion of the Metrobus 3A route and provides more service throughout the day. 

The following bus stops are not served by ART 55 on Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 9:00 am:

  • Lee Hwy, EB @ N Quinn St, FS -- RealTime #15067
  • Lee Hwy, EB @ Fort Myer Dr, NS -- RealTime #15068

These bus stops may show up on RealTime, but will not be served weekdays from 7 am - 9 am. During morning rush hour, ART 55 will take a detour down Quinn St. to avoid traffic on Lee Highway and get to the Rosslyn Metro station faster. These two bus stops get little to no use during AM rush. Regular service will resume for these stops after 9 am.

Service Changes Effective December 17

Service changes to the ART 55 route will go into effect on Monday, December 17. The weekday schedule will be slightly adjusted to improve on-time performance. Evening service frequency will be reduced from 12 to 13 minutes. View the new ART 55 schedule (PDF)
