Frequently Asked Questions About Washington D.C. Charter Bus Travel

Are there any restrictions on charter buses in Washington D.C.?

Yes. Washington D.C. sees a lot of tourist traffic throughout the year, which means the city maintains heavy-handed motorcoach regulations for the sake of safety and traffic flow.

Before your Washington D.C. bus rental even departs, keep in mind that most motorcoaches will need a Trip Permit from the DMV. This permit should be kept with your charter bus driver at all times in case it needs to be presented to the proper authorities.

In addition to a Trip Permit, your driver should have an idea as to where your bus rental should and shouldn’t drive throughout the city. D.C. is full of historic neighborhoods with narrow streets—as well as government facilities with strict security—so it never hurts to cross-reference your itinerary to the D.C. Department of Transportation’s map of which routes buses can safely take, located online here and as a PDF version here.

If you or your bus driver have any questions or concerns about D.C. charter bus regulations, feel free to call the city’s motorcoach hotline at 1-855-67-BUSES (28737) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday. From there, an official can offer the most up-to-date information on parking, routing, and permits.

Where can I park a charter bus in Washington D.C.?

Like we said before, motorcoach regulations are fairly strict in Washington D.C. That being said, the city offers some parking lots with bus-friendly spaces:

  • Union Station Bus Terminal
  • Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium
  • Buzzard’s Point Parking Lot

Fees for these lots range from $50 to $75 per vehicle, depending on the season. Keep in mind that parking fees will not be reflected in your Ally Charter Bus rental quote, and will need to be budgeted separately.

Additionally, some street parking spots around town can accommodate oversized vehicles like charter buses, including:

  • Near the White House, the 1400 block along New York Avenue NW, where New York Avenue NW and 14th Street intersect.
  • Near L’Enfant Plaza, along the 300 block of L’Enfant Plaza SW that is south of Independence Avenue SW and north of Frontage Road SW
  • Near the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development, along the 700-900 blocks of Frontage Road SW near 7th Street SW
  • Near the National Mall and the Museum of the Bible, along the 300 block of Virginia Avenue SW

What is D.C. traffic like?

According to the TomTom Traffic Index, Washington D.C.’s traffic flow is highly dependent on the time of year. As a highly touristed town, D.C. expects tighter traffic around the summer months (May to August) and especially on federal holidays like July 4th.

Otherwise, travelers can avoid the worst commuter traffic between the city center and nearby places like Arlington and Alexandria by staying off the roads during evening rush hour—generally between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

What are the largest convention centers in Washington D.C.?

If you’re planning a large-scale convention, conference, or event in D.C., it’s likely you will be holding it at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The facility is the district’s largest meeting venue and boasts more than 2.3 million square feet of floor space. Other popular and bookable event spaces include the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center near the National Mall, most hotels within walking distance of downtown, and many of the Smithsonian museums after visitor hours.

What are the public transportation options in Washington D.C?

D.C. is home to a relatively robust public transit system, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA or “the Metro”) which includes public buses and light rails. There are many routes within the city limits that reach popular tourist destinations and business centers, as well as commuter rails that transfer between the suburbs in Virginia and Maryland.

Monument Hop Around D.C.

Spend a few hours during your trip hopping between outdoor monuments and memorials. Visit famed memorials and monuments like the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and

Thomas Jefferson Memorial. If you plan to visit multiple locations, you may want to consider shuttling in your charter bus between locations, as some spots like the Thomas Jefferson Memorial can be a long walk for some visitors.

Visit Top Smithsonian-Affiliate Museums

Washington D.C. is packed full of museums, with around a dozen along the National Mall alone. Most museums are Smiithoaian-affiliated and completely free to visit. If you plan to explore a few museums, pencil in at least 2 hours per museum (some locations may even warrant a 3-hour visit!) Top museums to visit include the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. If you have additional time, hop on your charter bus and head north of the National Mall to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park.
