Happy New Years Washington, from Moovit

December 30, 2015

    Every New Years Eve, Moovit updates schedules with changes so you always have the most accurate trip directions and don’t waste time walking to a closed station or waiting for a train that isn’t coming. All WMATA services will operate on a standard weekday timetable with additional train, bus and ferry services operating.

    Public transport is the go for New Year’s Eve. With more than extra services on the night, catching a bus or train is a no-brainer.

    Crowds are expected, so if you’re travelling into the city, plan your trip using Moovit and we’ll guide you there smoothly.
