Shirlington doesn't have it's own Metrorail station, but is served by an extensive network of Metrobus and ART routes that take commuters to the Pentagon City and Crystal City Metro stations, among other destinations. Shirlington also provides easy access to Arlington's network of multi-use trails for bicyclists and walkers.

Shirlington Bus Station is Arlington's only enclosed public bus station and is the principal transfer point for Metrobus and ART bus service in South Arlington. The station's bicycle parking facilities make bike-bus multi-modal trips convenient. The Commuter Store® inside the station offers planning for the best way to travel, whether by bus, rail, carpool, vanpool, bicycle or walking. You can also purchase transit fares for any of the regional transit systems and Capital Bikeshare memberships, as well as pick up bus schedules and other literature. More than 2000 commuters use the station each day.

All these factors make Shirlington a prime residential location, all near restaurants and shops. With a nice mixture of leisure activities, great housing, and outstanding public transit access, Shirlington is another of the unique neighborhoods that make Arlington great.
