A few ART points of note:
- ART is getting 12 new 35-foot low-floor buses. These will be more durable, will have greater passenger capacity, and will offer passengers a more comfortable ride.
- Construction of Central Place across from the Rosslyn Metro will require relocating some bus stops on N. Moore St., which will be turned into a one-way street.
- ART routes 61a and 61b, which have a bus stop across from the Quarterdeck (N. Queen & 12th St), have low ridership on Saturdays. On average, only 40 persons are carried in total during the Sat. 8am to 4pm route operation (bus every 20 minutes, total of 24 trips). Given that the bus service costs about $75 per hour to run, that's not economical. ART is looking for ways to either attract more riders or streamline this service.
