Metrobus on Columbia PikeColumbia Pike is a little different from most of the other Urban Villages, in that it's not centered on a Metro station. Rather, the Pike is a major thoroughfare that stretches across south Arlington, from Arlington Cemetery and Fort Myer at the eastern end, all the way into Fairfax County to the west of Arlington. Pike Ride provides frequent and reliable bus service provided by Metrobus and ART-Arlington Transit.
