By Matt Bush

For the first time, riders will be able to get a non-stop intercity bus in D.C.'s Union Station.

The first bus left this morning for New York City from the new bus deck level in Union Station's parking garage. It's part of a six-month pilot program to measure the demand for intercity bus service in D.C. Prior to this morning, buses could only pick up and drop off passengers on city streets.

D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton called it baffling that buses were one of the only mode of transportation not serving Union Station.

The pilot program will allow passengers to catch a Greyhound, Boltbus, a Washington Delux or a DC2NY bus at Union Station.
