Do you take the (free) shuttle between Archives I and Archives II, but wish it worked better with your commute? Take note of the trial stop addition to the shuttle's route!
Beginning January 30, the hourly shuttle between Archives I and II will add a stop near the Prince George's Plaza Metro station.
- The Archives I to Archives II shuttle will pick up riders from the Prince George's Plaza Metro once per day. The shuttle from Archives I will stop at Prince George's Plaza at approximately and continue to Archives II.
- The Archives II to Archives I shuttle will drop off riders at Prince George's Plaza on every run. The shuttle from Archives II will stop at Prince George's Plaza hourly from
- Shuttles in both directions will stop along Belcrest Road, near the intersection with the East-West Highway. Pick-up/drop-off points are a short walk from the Prince George's Plaza Metro station (see figures below).
NARA is adding the Prince George's Plaza stop as a 90-day trial. We are testing the additional stop to determine whether it is a useful replacement for the R3 bus route that WMATA recently cancelled. After 90 days, we will determine whether to continue this stop. To this end, drivers will track ridership to and from the Prince George's Plaza stop. When you get on the shuttle, please inform the driver that you need to get off at the Prince George's Plaza Metro Station. A sign will be displayed above the driver to remind passengers.
