Metrobus to expand late-night service, restore more routes to support region’s recovery effective June 6

En español

Metrobus customers will soon have more options, with expanded late-night service, additional routes restored and improved service on selected routes throughout DC, Maryland and Virginia.

Beginning Sunday, June 6, late-night service will extend until 2 a.m. on 36 of the busiest routes throughout the region, providing customers who work or travel late at night a way to get to work and home.  The changes are part of improvements to more than 60 Metrobus routes to provide more frequent, reliable service and restore routes. 

In April, Metrobus ridership on weekdays averaged about 180,000 passenger trips each day, providing essential transportation for people to get around the region. The service changes will bring Metrobus service to 85 percent of pre-pandemic service levels with more buses, more often to accommodate the growing return of bus riders.
