New Shuttle Service Arrives at National Harbor

More transportation coming to Prince George’s mega-development.

An additional transit route has launched at National Harbor in Oxon Hill to shuttle passengers to and from spots in Washington, DC, and northern Virginia.

The shuttle service opened Sept. 22, backed by Peterson Cos., the site's developer. Residents, workers, and hotel guests at the $4 billion development will get free rides on the shuttle, but all others will pay $10, reports The Washington Business Journal.

Stops include the King St. Metro in Alexandria, Union Station, and the Old Post Office Pavillion.

Public access to National Harbor has been an issue since it opened in 2008. The development also is served by a Metro bus route.

Is anyone surprised the shuttle doesn't service any areas inside Prince Geoge's outside of the Harbor?

This is a great resource for residents! Free transportation is a luxury, but $20 round trip ($40 with a date) for non residents isn't going to help bring foot traffic. It could potentially backfire as guests at the hotels get shuttled away leaving a ghost town behind. I wonder if these shuttles will run late enough to serve the bar-going crowd.
