Metrobus Service Changes Beginning Sunday, June 21

On Sunday June 21, 2015, service changes are coming to select Metrobus routes serving the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia in a continued effort to bring you a Better Bus experience. Most changes include schedule adjustments, reroutes to existing service and an introduction of new routes. We encourage customers to view the timetables page. Please continue to check back for updates and new timetables in the upcoming weeks.
