Starting December 17, 14 Metrobus routes will run around the clock to better serve essential workers and visitors.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) announced it will expand Metrobus service to 24 hours a day on 14 bus routes starting December 17, according to an article in Mass Transit. “These high ridership routes on key corridors will predominantly support late-night and early-morning essential workers in hospitality, healthcare and entertainment industries.”
The expansion comes after an agreement with the District of Columbia brought more funding to WMATA. “WMATA says the 24/7 DC Bus Service will help support Washington, D.C.’s, growing economic vitality and diversity. Many of the selected bus routes run through the city’s late night hot spots and entertainment venues, providing those who enjoy the nightlife and late-night workers better transit options.” The new service will include ‘courtesy stops,’ letting passengers request to be let off between stops during nighttime hours.
