Effective December 15: All Buses Stopping in Braddock Road Metro Station Bus Loop
DASH AT3, AT4, and AT3-4 and WMATA 10A/B bus routes will now stop in the Metro Station Bus Loop while the City of Alexandria, DASH and WMATA evaluate the feasibility of long-term improvements to the bus stops on Braddock Road.
Stops on Braddock Road will also remain to accommodate passengers not using the Metro Station.
Buses will stop in the following locations:
Bus Bay A:
• Metrobus 10A to Pentagon
• Metrobus 10B to Ballston
• DASH AT3 to Pentagon
• DASH AT4 to Pentagon
• DASH AT3/4 to Parkfairfax
Bus Bay D:
• Metrobus 10A to Huntington
• Metrobus 10B to Hunting Point
• DASH AT3 to Hunting Point
• DASH AT4 to Old Town-City Hall
• DASH AT3/4 to Old Town-City Hall
*Please note: DASH AT5 will relocate from Bus Bay D to Bus Bay C.
During the summer 2019 WMATA Platform Improvement Project, WMATA, DASH and the City of Alexandria found that many passengers saved time while buses did not enter the bus loop by having stops directly on Braddock Road. However, there are concerns about passenger amenities at these locations.
Therefore, the City of Alexandria, DASH and WMATA have decided that buses will stop in the loop in addition to the maintaining the stops on Braddock Road. Northbound DASH buses will enter the loop and then stop directly on Braddock Road. The Southbound DASH buses will first stop directly on Braddock Road before entering the loop and continuing on route. The permanent location of these stops will be revisited in spring 2020.
This decision will be based on public feedback and technical considerations.
As part of this effort, the City of Alexandria has developed a short passenger feedback form. Please let us know how you value different amenities at the station and how the location of the stops affects your commute.
