Arlington benefits from the MBTA bus routes, commuter rail, and the subway’s Red Line that can convey commuters through Cambridge to Boston’s South Station. Massachusetts’ Route 2 runs along the border of Arlington and Belmont while I-93 and I-95/Route 128 are a short drive away. Arlington encompasses a variety of parks and historical sites as well as the Minuteman Bikeway, a bike path that was repurposed from an old railway line in the government’s Rails to Trails project.
