A second round of Metrobus service enhancements have taken effect to provide customers with better service. 

Metro says the effort will improve on-time performance and reliability while reducing crowding for customers along several routes in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia

Among the service changes that took effect on Sept. 30 are:

•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. 

The service enhancements are part of the transit system's $5 million investment to improve bus service this year.
