Metro Considering Eliminating Some Arlington Bus Routes

Metrobus 5A to Dulles from Rosslyn(Updated at 12:45 p.m.) WMATA is seeking public feedback on a proposal to eliminate a number of Metrobus routes, including some routes that run through Arlington.

Metro is encouraging riders to take an online survey about the proposed changes and to attend a public hearing, scheduled to start at 6 p.m. tonight at Metro headquarters (600 5th Street NW).

Among the proposed changes:

  • Eliminating the 5A line that connects L’Enfant Plaza, Rosslyn and Dulles Airport
  • Eliminating the 9A line that runs from the Huntington Metro station to Old Town Alexandria, Potomac Yard and the Pentagon
  • Eliminating late night weekend service on the 7A line connecting Shirlington, Fairlington and the Pentagon Metro station
  • Stopping service to Crystal City on the 16H line that runs down Columbia Pike (it will instead stop at the Pentagon City Metro station)
  • Eliminate service from East Falls Church to Rosslyn on the 3A line that runs to Annandale (it will instead be replaced by ART bus service)

Metro says the proposals are part of an annual service review that’s intended to make the system more efficient.
