New Premium Transit Service Announced by WMATA  

Starting in 2014, WMATA will run the region's first premium bus transit service along the Transitway between the Braddock Road and Pentagon City Metrorail stations. The five-mile corridor will offer segments of exclusive running way, frequent service, off-board fare collection, and level boarding. The City of Alexandria, Arlington County, and WMATA have collaborated on the branding to distinguish this new transitway service from other bus services in the region. The service will be called Metroway and will feature a bold, blue vehicle design, which easily distinguishes the vehicle from other services in the area.

Service will run every 12 minutes Monday-Friday and every 20 minutes on weekends. Hours will be:

  • Monday-Thursday:     5:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.

  • Friday:                          5:30 a.m. - midnight

  • Saturday:                     6:30 a.m. - midnight

  • Sunday:                       7:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. 

Additional Construction Information

  • Transitway construction crew members will continue to park near the construction work area on the east side of Route 1 and not in the neighborhoods to the west.
  • No construction vehicles for this project will be permitted to travel through the neighborhoods west of Route 1. Vehicles exiting this area will be required to exit towards Route 1.
