Considered by some to be an elusive creature, the Shuttle can actually be located with minimal effort by those who consult the schedule ahead of time. The Shuttle is generally friendly, but can be frightened by loud noises. It is generally far less tolerant of outbursts than its cousins the X2 and the 90/92. When you encounter an H Street Shuttle, you should not attempt to employ your Smart Trip card, or otherwise pay for the ride. Instead, you should simply take your seat, and allow the Shuttle to go about its business. It will periodically stop to graze, or drink when it comes across watering holes.
Shown below is a rare photo of a female H Street Shuttle outside of her normal habitat. She has strayed onto Bladensburg Road, possibly in search of a shrimp po-boy, or serving of seafood salad from Sullivan's.
Where is the shuttle, and when does it stop, are two questions heard not infrequently along the H Street Corridor. For those who haven't ridden the shuttle:
1. it's free
2. it's clean
3. it will take you to Chinatown
4. the schedule is online (if the link is down it's because the Atlas is having a temporary problem with its website)
5. it runs until the Metro closes
