Proposed Changes to Arlington Bus Service – We WANT your feedback!

Arlington has drafted recommendations to improve bus service in the County over the next 10 years. The proposal suggests changes to 36 ART and Metrobus routes by enhancing or restructuring their services.  We want to get feedback from residents on these proposed changes and how they could impact the community.
