From WMATA:

“Riders along the busy 16th Street corridor may notice that “new bus smell” on their commute home as Metro today put in service five brand-new 60-foot accordion style articulated buses, replacing some of the oldest vehicles in the fleet.

The new buses are part of a larger order of 21 articulated buses and 274 standard buses that will be put in service over the next year, replacing vehicles that are at the end of their 12-year lifespan.

The 21 new articulated buses will run on three of Metro’s busy north-south corridors: 16th Street (S-Line), 14th Street (50-Line), and Georgia Avenue (70-Line). Combined, these routes carry more than 50,000 passengers on a typical weekday.”
