How to go Car Free to Columbia Pike

There’s always something happening along Columbia Pike. Arlington’s “Main Street” is a vibrant, bustling, diverse community with a lot to offer. Restaurants, nightlife, community centers and neighborhood events dot the landscape of this three-mile stretch that’s home to over a quarter of Arlington’s residents.

Arlington's Car-Free Diet is presented by Arlington County Commuter Services (ACCS), a bureau of the Arlington, Virginia Department of Environmental Services.
