Court House is an island platformed Washington Metro station in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia, United States. The station was opened on December 1, 1979, and is operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Weekday ridership is approximately 14,000 passengers per day.[2] The station presently serves only the Orange Line, but is also planned to be on the Silver Line, which is scheduled to start operations in 2013.[3] Taking its name from the nearby Arlington Courthouse, the station is located at the intersection of Wilson Boulevard and Uhle Street.


The station opened on December 1, 1979.[4] Its opening coincided with the completion of approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) of rail west of the Rosslyn station and the opening of the Clarendon, Virginia Square and Ballston stations.[4] Presently, there are long-range plans to create a new entrance for the station at its western end. These plans envision an elevator that would connect the western end of the platform to a location near the corner of Clarendon Boulevard and Barton Street.
