Metro Debuts Long, High-Tech Buses

New Metrobuses are making their debut Monday along busy D.C. corridors.

More than 20 accordion-style buses were rolled out along 14th Street NW, 16th Street NW and Georgia Avenue NW.

Metro says the new articulated buses will be more reliable and comfortable, and will improve service along the busy north-south routes

The buses are 60 feet long on the inside and fit a total of 115 each, with seats for 61 people and standing room for 54 people.

The $970,000 buses have nine security cameras, an upgrade from the seven cameras in buses now.
