After Washington, DC VT-meeting we (my wife, Kathy, Chris and me) came back to our hotel in Arlington first by metro than by metrobus. At our starting metro station in DC (behind the gates) we found a vending machine which gave us free so called transfers - a kind of tickets which entitled us later to pay a discounted metrobus fare of 35c (instead of $1.25), paid to a driver of our bus from Pentagon metro station to Sheraton National hotel.
1. Metrorail-to-Metrobus transfers
Get it at your start metro station (behind the gates) at the vending machine (it's free), one per person. Then show it to a driver of a metrobus to pay 35c (instead of $1.25) on regular Metrobus routes or $1.65 (instead of $3.00) on express routes. Warning: transfers are not valid for stopovers, return trips or within four blocks of where they are issued.
2. Metrobus-to-Metrobus transfers
When you board a bus ask your bus driver for a FREE transfer. This transfer is valid for unlimited Metrobus connections, including round trips, within the two-hour period shown on transfer. In case of traveling first regular route and then express one when you show your transfer you must pay the difference ($1.75) in an express bus.
Note: if you pay with a SmarTrip card (electronic card with a chip), you don't need a paper transfer - it works automatically.
