Metrobus Service During Pope Francis’ Visit to Washington DC

Metro Bus - Washington, DC

Metrobus is planning a number of detours, service changes, and some additional service when Pope Francis comes to Washington, DC from the afternoon of Tuesday, September 22 until the late afternoon of Thursday, September 24.  While many service adjustments will be in place, Metrobus plans to operate a regular weekday schedule for passengers on all three days.

Passengers should be prepared for longer waits, increased trip times and limited Next Bus predictions online due to route detours.

The best advice is for Metrobus customers to transfer to Metrorail at your first opportunity. Free Metrobus-to-Metrorail transfers will be available (ask Bus Operator for transfer, present to Station Manager upon entering).
