With your input, we've created the proposed 2025 Better Bus Network, which represents Metro’s commitment to improving service and connections using the resources we have today. By changing routes and service times, this network better connects the region, increases access to better bus service, and makes the bus more convenient. Download state maps and route profiles using the links below.

State Maps

Review all routes in the proposed 2025 Network by state. The network redesign covers Metrobus as well as TheBus in Prince George’s County. Metro is collaborating with other providers to efficiently integrate existing and planned bus services.

Proposed Bus Stop Consolidation
As part of the proposed 2025 Better Bus Network, Metro is taking this opportunity to review and consolidate bus stops across the region to make service faster and more direct. Click to learn more about the proposed bus stop consolidation.

New Route Names

The proposed 2025 Network features brand-new bus route names for all Metrobus routes as well as routes run by project partner Prince George’s County TheBus. Informed by customer and industry research, these new route names will have three characters and include the following components:

  • The first character will be one of six letters:
    • “D” or “C” for Washington, DC, routes
    • “M” for Montgomery County routes
    • “P” for Prince George’s County routes
    • “A” for Arlington County or Alexandria routes
    • “F” for Fairfax County, Fairfax City, or Falls Church routes
  • The second character will be a number based on the corridor or neighborhood in which the route runs
  • The third character will be another number to distinguish it from other routes in the area, or an “X” to represent a limited-stop route

Revised Visionary Network

Last year, you gave us feedback on the draft Visionary Network—the future bus network our region deserves. We’ve used your comments to create the proposed 2025 Better Bus Network and to revise the Visionary Network. While we don’t have the resources to start using the Visionary Network right away, the proposed 2025 Network is a practical first step to take us there. View the revised Visionary Network on the Better Bus Resources page.
