But what does that mean? How do you find out what the 'snow emergency' route is? The WMATA website of course has no more information.

Generally, snow emergency routes are the main roads and buses won't divert onto neighborhood streets. I can't seem to find a map of what roads are snow emergency routes though. Here is a listing of all the snow emergnecy roads in DC

If you are unsure, look for red and white signs along the road that designate it a snow emergency route.
