Public Transportation

  • Patrons traveling by Metro should take the yellow or blue lines, get off at the Pentagon Metro and take a bus from the Pentagon Bus Terminal, right outside the Metro Station.
  • From the terminal, the 7A, 7C, 7F, 7Y, 10B, 22A, 22C, 23A, 23B, 23T, ART 72, 75, 77, 87, and DASH 36A, 36B buses all run through Shirlington Bus Station. Travel time to Shirlington from the Pentagon Bus Terminal: typically between 10 and 25 minutes – varies by bus line. Timetables subject to change.
  • ART 87 provides direct service between the Shirlington Bus Station and the Pentagon Metro station on weekdays, with few stops along Glebe Road and Army Navy Drive. On weekends, the ART 87 route goes to the Pentagon City Metro station instead of the Pentagon.
  • Upon arrival at the Shirlington Bus station, walk to the right towards Campbell Avenue and make a left. The Theatre will be at the end of the street. Please note that the buses runs every 30 – 60 minutes on Saturday and Sunday.
  • For further planning we recommend the WMATA Trip Planner, available at (please use the search term “Shirlington Bus Station”).
  • We also recommend Arlington’s Car Free Diet’s video about taking public transportation to Signature.

Patrons may instead consider a short taxi ride from the Pentagon City Metro Station (one stop from the Pentagon station). A taxi stand is located in front of the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The fare is approximately $12 (subject to change).
