Sorry for this simple question, but I would rather look like an idiot on this forum than in front of a bus driver. I have looked at the Metro's site and I grew up in Montgomery County and used to take the Ride On for a quarter a long, long, time ago.
Now I am planning a trip to DC, where I haven't been in almost 20 years and I was wondering about how to take the bus. I used to take the Metro every day, but never the bus.
If I am a family of four and we board and the fare is $1.75, do we pay separately, do we have to use cash or can I charge the four of us? How does it work? I am so used to charging everything nowadays. Do cabs there take credit cards?
Sorry if the answers have been posted before, I did a quick search with no luck.
