Priority Corridor Network (PCN)

The Metrobus Priority Corridor Network (PCN) is a strategy for improving bus service in the Washington region quickly and efficiently. The goal of the PCN is to improve bus service travel times, reliability, capacity, productivity and system access. The plan includes 24 corridors across the region and will impact half of all bus riders in the current Metrobus system.

The PCN will provide a faster and more comfortable service by improving and providing:

  • Bus running ways, signal priorities and bus-only lanes or queue jumpers.
  • Better passenger amenities, access, information and service reliability.
  • New buses with low floors and hybrid technology.
  • New limited stop services.
