Transportation Options

Arlington, Virginia is one of the best places in the United States to go car-free. The reason? There are so many good transportation options:

  • Metrorail is the region's subway/rail system. Arlington has 11 stations on Metrorail's Orange, Silver, Blue, and Yellow lines.
  • Metrobus is the DC area's regional bus system, and operates more than 20 routes on Arlington's main streets.
  • ART - Arlington Transit is Arlington's local bus system. ART connects Arlington neighborhoods to each other and to Metrorail using environmentally-friendly, compressed natural gas vehicles.
  • Walking infrastructure in Arlington includes wide sidewalks, miles of multi-use trails, and countdown signals at many intersections, so pedestrians know how much time they have to cross.
  • Bicycling is a healthy, inexpensive and environmentally responsible way to go. And in Arlington, it's easy too.
  • Bikesharing is public transportation using bicycles. In Arlington, bikesharing is Capital Bikeshare, a joint program of Arlington, the District of Columbia, Alexandria, Fairfax County and Montgomery County.
  • Carsharing gives you the use of a car when you need it, without the hassle and expense of owning a car. Zipcar and car2go have cars available to members throughout Arlington.
  • Taxicab and Transportation Network Companies (TNCs such as Uber and Lyft) are great options to have available when you're car-free, or when you use a carpool or transit for your commute but need to make a quick trip during the day.
