Check your bus routes this weekend — the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) issued changes to several routes and will cease others starting March 27.

In an effort to cut back on routes with low ridership and serve routes expanding into Maryland — the Takoma Langley Crossroads Transit Center and the Westfield Montgomery Mall Transit Center —, WMATA plans to eliminate or reduce several bus schedules.

Here’s a breakdown of the routes affected on or near Capitol Hill. To see all changes, click this link at wmata.com/ride_tools. To view the WMATA bus route map, check the PDF file below. 

  • 90, 92 — These routes will start taking early morning and late evening trips. The two routes cover Congress Heights up through Capitol Hill, along Florida Avenue and up to U Street NW.
  • 93 — WMATA will discontinue this route. It currently covers a similar path through Capitol Hill as the 90 and 92.
  • 34 — This route will run starting after 9:19 a.m. Monday through Friday, but discontinue on the weekends. It currently travels from Naylor Road SE up along Pennsylvania Avenue SE into Capitol Hill, finishing on the National Mall. Riders can catch the 30N and 36 lines from Naylor Road to downtown when they can’t ride the 34.
