Lexington’s Lexpress bus service is coming to Arlington Heights, starting July 1.
The new Lexpress Route 1, which begins in Lexington Center’s Depot Square, will go down Bow Street and then circle through Arlington Heights via Lowell Street, Park Avenue and Mass. Ave.
The bus will run once per hour from 6:30 a.m. (7:30 a.m. during the summer) to 6 p.m. on weekdays. Unlike the MBTA, Lexpress buses do not have designated stops – riders just need to wave the bus down, like hailing a cab. Once you board, just tell the driver your destination.
At Depot Square in Lexington Center, riders can transfer to any of the five other Lexpress’ routes, one of which goes to the Burlington Mall/Market Basket.
The general Lexpress’ fare (age 19-64) is $2 per ride. Student fare (age 6-18) is $1.75, and seniors (age 65+) and riders with special needs pay $0.75 (or free from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.). Transfers are $0.25.
Books of 14 one-way tickets are available for $20 as are bus passes at the Lexpress office in Lexington Town Hall and via mail.
