Due to a work stoppage (learn more), OmniRide has announced the following route changes. It does not yet know how long changes will last. Please check its website for the latest updates and service information.
OmniRide buses will operate on a modified Emergency Service Plan today, Thursday, August 1, due to a work stoppage by the union representing our bus operators.
Please note that due to Metrorail’s Blue and Yellow Line shutdown, OmniRide Express buses running along the I-95 corridor will run only to and from the Pentagon.
To offset any inconvenience, fares are free on any buses not running regular service today. (At this time, only OmniRide Express buses are affected.)
OmniRide Express Passengers may want to consider riding a Metro Express bus to the Franconia-Springfield or Tysons Metro stations, taking VRE, or slugging during the work stoppage.
Please note that any buses not running on their regular schedules will not be tracked by OmniRide’s real-time mobile app. (This currently applies to OmniRide Express buses.)
