By Kate Sheehy

Metro says most bus routes are back to normal, but there are still restrictions on some routes in the district, Maryland and Virginia.

Metro says road conditions remain rough in some areas, and this is causing some routes to continue to operate on snow emergency or alternate routes.

Metro Access is back on the road with limited service to some locations because of snow and ice on roads and sidewalks.

D.C. Circulator buses also continue to run, but with fewer buses and some route changes as well. In addition, the Circulator is not stopping on Wisconsin Avenue, north of M street in Georgetown.

Metro is warning bus riders to be careful getting on and off of buses, as many stops are still blocked by snow. Check Metro's website for more information.
