Metrobus Changes Coming

The transit authority is making many changes in Metrobus service, starting Sunday.

Of special interest are the changes in the 30s bus line, one of the longest and most heavily used of Metro's bus services. The line passes through some of the most congested parts of the region and has suffered severe problems with erratic schedules and slow service.

So the transit authority and the District Department of Transportation worked with riders to develop the plan that takes effect Sunday. If this works out, it could serve as a model for improving other services.

Here's a list of all the routes affected by the changes. (Type your route number into Metro's bus timetable page to see what impact it will have on your ride.)
