From WMATA:

“Due to current weather and road conditions, Metrobus service is operating on a “moderate” snow service plan, meaning that many Metrobus routes are only operating on major roadways to keep buses off of hilly terrain, narrow side streets and other problem areas.

Bus service is experiencing delays due to weather road conditions. Please allow additional time and use extreme caution when traveling.  For your safety, never stand in the roadway while waiting for a bus.  For delay and detour information affecting individual routes, check the bus alerts page or sign up for MetroAlerts.”

Update 2:40pm:

“In the interest of safety given current road conditions, all Metrobus service will continue operating on a “moderate snow plan” for the remainder of the service day. Under the moderate snow plan, service is provided along most major arteries; however, some Metrobus routes do not operate and others are detoured to keep buses off of hilly terrain, narrow side streets and other problem areas.”
