Buses will continue to use stops at the crosswalk on West Braddock Road in front of the Braddock Road Metrorail Station to reduce travel times and improve service reliability.
 

AT-5

Route/Stop changes in Old Town during the weekday PM Peak:

  • AT-5 Eastbound buses departing from King Street Metro towards Braddock Road Metro will not serve stops on Duke Street at West Street or Payne Street on weekdays from 3-7 p.m. due to heavy traffic. The first stop on Duke Street will be made at Alfred Street. West Street passengers should use the stop at Daingerfield Road & Prince Street (next to the Crate & Barrel outlet). Payne Street passengers should use the stop at Alfred Street.
  • AT-5 Westbound buses traveling from Braddock Road Metro towards King Street Metro will not serve westbound Duke Street on weekdays from 3-7 p.m. due to heavy traffic. There will also be no stops from 3-7 p.m. on Duke Street at Henry Street, Payne Street or Peyton Street, or at Daingerfield Road & Prince Street. Passengers using the AT-5 Westbound can board buses at any stop on westbound King Street.
  • No route or stop changes are planned for AM peak, midday, evening or weekend periods. AT-5 buses will continue to serve all stops on Duke Street in Old Town during those times.

 

AT-7

Trips will discontinue service to the bus bays at Eisenhower Metro to improve service reliability. Passengers can board AT-7 buses at the adjacent stops on Eisenhower Avenue & Swamp Fox Road.

Schedule changes to improve on-time performance and coordinate with WMATA 29 K/N trips on weekends include:

  • Between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekends, passengers on Duke Street between King Street Metro and Landmark Mall will have service approximately every 15 minutes with the combination of Metro 29K/N and DASH AT-8 buses. Please note:
    • 29K/N buses only make select stops on Duke Street (see wmata.com for details)
    • The DASH Pass and the DASH Bus mobile app are not accepted on Metrobus. Customers wishing to use both services should purchase Metrobus 7-Day passes or pay the base fare using a SmarTrip card to take advantage of free transfers between DASH and Metrobus.
