In preparation for the re-launch of the Next Bus system on July 1, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) began posting Next Bus signs at Metrobus stops throughout the region.
The round, red, white and blue Next Bus signs include a unique, identifying bus stop number and the phone number to call to get real-time bus arrival information for that bus stop. Signs are being posted at more than 12,008 Metrobus stops in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
When the Next Bus system becomes available, Metrobus customers will be able to get real-time bus arrival information on Metro’s Website, by telephone or from electronic signs installed at select Metrobus stops.
