Shuttle Bus Upgrade
When the Sibley Memorial Hospital Foundation’s board learned that the shuttle service’s bus needed to be replaced, it saw an opportunity to promote the hospital. Motorists and pedestrians can’t miss the new graphic of an oversized doctor’s bag topped by a stethoscope that gives information about the hospital. The shuttle continues to provide patients and visitors with free transportation between the Tenleytown-AU Metro station, located on the Red Line, and Sibley’s campus. The bus runs continuously from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Learn more: bit.ly/sibleyshuttleservice.
