WASHINGTON (WUSA) - Beginning Sept. 30 a second round of Metrobus improvements will go into effect as part of a $5 million investment.

This is the second round of upgrades that aim to improve performance, reliability, and crowding reduction in DC, Maryland and Virginia. The 'Better Bus' initiative is the largest investment in bus service in the last five years, according to metro officials. An estimated 150,000 customers will benefit from this initiative.

According to metro officials, some of the enhancements include:

• Conversion of the 16F and 16Y routes on Columbia Pike to limited-stop MetroExtra service.
• Utilization of the limited-stop blue MetroExtra buses on the 28X route on Leesburg Pike.
• Schedule adjustments on the MetroExtra J4 College Park-Bethesda route, the Y5, Y7, Y8, and Y9 routes on Georgia Avenue, Maryland, and on REX, Richmond Highway Express line.
