This is a list of bus routes operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), branded as Metrobus. Many are the descendants of streetcar lines operated by the Capital Transit Company or its predecessors.

Numbering[edit]

Bus routes operating in or through Virginia are noted with a letter and a number. Bus routes operating in DC or Maryland use only a number, or a letter and a number, as noted below.

Odd-numbered routes are typically part-time variants of even-numbered routes. At one time, odd numbered routes were express routes, but that distinction has been abandoned. Most D.C. and Maryland routes are grouped by their first digit. When this system was laid out in 1936, the following clustering was used:
