You may notice above the masthead a link to a Nextbus page. That page explains how you can receive, right now, real-time information about when a Metrobus will actually arrive. Many Georgetown residents, including GM, take Metrobus almost everyday. Until that Georgetown subway finally opens, Metrobus is one of the only transit options for us (many also take the GBID’s “blue-now-white” bus or the Georgetown University shuttle, though they’re not hooked up to Nextbus). Getting accurate information about when buses will actually show up makes the bus riding experience much better, particularly on the weekends when the bus may only show up every 45 minutes or so.
Caveat: the 30’s series and the Circulator aren’t hooked up yet either. Hopefully they’ll be part of the final roll-out next year.
