Buses will operate on a Sunday schedule beginning Friday and ending Sunday.

Meanwhile, D.C.'s Department of Public Works has an early Christmas gift for motorists: free parking. Spokeswoman Linda Grant confirms no expired parking meter tickets will be written Friday or Saturday. Residential and rush-hour parking restrictions will also be suspended.
