Metro and the D.C. Transportation Department are starting a new, pilot program that will allow District students to buy and renew their 10-trip Metrobus passes at Giant grocery stores.

The pilot program will run from March 4 to July 1.

It is meant to make it easier for students to get the bus pass in areas near their homes and schools. Students have to present their DC One Card and have at least one remaining bus trip on an existing pass to buy a new 10-trip bus pass.

The Giant stores involved in the pilot program are located at 1050 Brentwood Rd. NE, 1345 Park Road NW, 4303 Connecticut Avenue NW, and 1535 Alabama Avenue SE.
