Metro-Venture Reviews the X9
Even if you haven't ridden it, chances are you've heard about the X9. It's the recently launched express bus line that runs along H Street (like the X2, but with fewer stops, and it only runs during rush hour). The blogger behind Metro-Venture regularly reviews different bus lines and metro station, so it's no small thing that she award the X9 a 9 out of 10. The same blogger reviewed the X2 a little under a year ago. She gave it a 4.
A few other lines of local interest that the blogger reviews:
D4 (7) Where I'd take it: Downtown, to 13th and I NW.
D8 (7) Where I'd take it: Union Station.
X1/X3 (4) Where I'd take it: I might the X1 to North Capitol if the X2 was full.
X8 (7) Where I'd take it: When I used to housesit for a friend on the Hill I'd sometimes catch this to Union Station (it runs down Maryland).
90/92/93 (5) Where I'd take it: U Street, 14th Street, Adams Morgan, Eastern Market.
Circulator Union Station - Navy Yard Via Capitol Hill (3) Where I'd take it: probably no where. I'd take the 90 instead.
Circulator Union Station - Georgetown (8) Where I'd take it: all the way to Georgetown. I rarely go, but the Circulator does get me there when I need to make it to Mie N Yu. I have not tried taking the D3, but that might be a better bet.
