Metroway

Metroway is a new premium transit service offering a faster trip along Route 1 between Crystal City and Braddock Rd Metrorail stations, via Potomac Yard.  The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) operates Metroway, which features dedicated bus-only lanes, consolidated bus stops, and more service, seven days a week.  Because Metroway buses travel on bus-only lanes through congested areas, beating traffic is a breeze.  Buses come often and make limited stops, so you’ll get where you need to go—faster.
