Changes are coming to SmarTrip including reduced cost and a $1 surcharge for using a paper farecard.

This change impacts all public transit in the DC area. Baltimore's Charmcard works in DC and DC's SmarTrip works in Baltimore, too.

Viral Meningitis Exposure on 52/54 Buses H/T The Washington Post [Apr. 24th, 2012|12:49 pm]

If you rode the 52 or 54 buses Friday morning, you might want to go to the doctor. This isn't a joke by any means. Metro announced Monday that a driver on those lines has been diagnosed with viral meningitis. The transit agency has removed the bus involved for sanitation, but the virus is contagious, from what I understand, so you should get yourself checked. The Post's Dana Hedgpeth details exactly when the driver was in public.

You'll find it here. It relies very heavily on shutting down a stretch of a line in both directions and using shuttle buses, which improves service on the open bits dramatically.

This post over at Greater Greater Washington has more details, and useful info in the comments as well.
