WMATA: All Buses to Run Tomorrow, Some With Detours
Metrobus service will be nearly back to normal tomorrow.
Buses will operate on a “light snow plan” on Thursday, meaning that all Metrobus routes will be in service but some lines may have detours.
On 16th Street, all buses will operate on a normal daily schedule.
On U Street, the 90, 92 and 93 buses will operate normally. Depending on road conditions, the 96 bus may take a detour, as might the X3 bus.
Information on which lines might be taking detours is available on the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s website.
As snow clearing progresses and road conditions improve across the region, Metrobus service will be upgraded to a “light” snow service plan starting Thursday morning.
Under the “light” snow plan, all routes are in service; however, pre-planned snow detours are in effect to keep buses off of hilly terrain, narrow streets and other problem areas.
Metrorail will run every 8 minutes during rush hours on each line. The transit agency adds that “trains may be more crowded than usual” due to reduced rail car availability after the blizzard.
