Commuter Buses

These long-haul bus services bring commuters to the D.C. area in the morning, and take them back outside the beltway in the evening. Commuter bus services usually make only a few stops, connecting with other transit systems or park-and-ride lots on each end of the commute.

SmarTrip® and SmartBenefits®

Guaranteed Ride Home

If you commute by bus, you may be eligible for Commuter Connections' Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH). GRH provides free taxi rides home when the unexpected happens. The Guaranteed Ride Home Service is also available to commuters who use other commuting alternatives, such as carpooling or bicycling. More about the Guaranteed Ride Home Program.
