Metrobus schedules and service will change on some routes in the District and Maryland starting Sunday.

Riders will see some slight adjustments to timetables and some  route changes because of construction activity.

The changes are part of Metro’s Better Bus initiative, a $5 million investment to improve on-time performance and reliability in some of the region’s busiest corridors.


Fort Totten-Petworth line.  Riders of the No. 60 will have to wait a little longer between buses. Between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. buses will run every 45 minutes.

U Street-Garfield line. The Route 92, which serves U Street, will end its northbound trips at 14th Street and U Street NW. Southbound trips will begin at 13th and U Street NW.

Anacostia lines. The W2, W3, W6 and W8 routes will bypass the Skyland Shopping Center where there is ongoing redevelopment of the property.


Lines serving University of Maryland at College Park. Routes F6 (New Carrollton-Fort Totten), C8 (College Park-White Flint), J4 (College Park-Bethesda) and C2 (Greenbelt-Twinbrook) will operate on Stadium Drive during the Campus Drive construction project.

Bethesda-Silver Spring line. Eastbound buses on routes J2 and J3 will serve the bus stop on Rockville Pike at Medical Center Station and will not enter the bus loop.

Other bus lines. Bus schedules will be slightly adjusted to improve on-time performance on the following routes: A11 and A12 (Martin Luther King Jr. Highway); C11 and C13 (Clinton); and B27 (Bowie-New Carrollton).
