Express buses in the hood?


Express bus

I saw a couple of these blue and silver Metro Express buses on 14th Street this morning -- I wonder if they're testing out a new route? There were about 2 of these buses in about 2 minutes, and I've never seen them on 14th before.

WMATA does run these up Georgia Ave and 16th I believe.

  3. What time of the morning was it? If it was early, they were probably going from the bus garage down to McPherson Square to begin the northbound S9 route up 16th Street.

  5. What direction were they going? Maybe they were headed back to the garage. The last northbound departure from McPherson Square is at 9:15, but buses keep arriving from the southbound direction until 10:35 AM

  6. Going North. Good point inlogan, but I hadn't ever seen them before and I am usually out there around the same time. Who knows, I guess.
