Per MCDOT: “Beginning on Sunday, Dec. 17 the bus loop at Friendship Heights Metro Station will close for approximately two months due to a WMATA concrete replacement project. During the closure, all Metrobus and Ride On routes normally served inside the loop will be temporarily relocated.

Throughout construction, all bus services will continue operations. However, routes serving bus bays C, D, E, F, G and H will be relocated. The temporary bus stop locations will be established along Western Avenue and 44th Street for Metrobus routes 31, 33, N2, N4, and N6 and Ride On bus routes 1, 11, 23 and 29. Follow all posted signs for the temporary bus stop locations. Bus bays J and K located on the exterior of the facility will not be impacted. The station and all entrances will remain open. See the map below for additional details.

Ride On bus fare is only $1 and monthly passes are $22.50 using SmarTrip, cash, or tokens. Seniors age 65 or older, persons with disabilities and youth ages 18 and under all ride free using specialized SmartTrip cards.

Riders can plan trips online using the free Ride On Trip Planner App.
