Tour Bus Regulations

Important information for motorcoach operators and drivers.


In response to safety, security and preservation requirements, the Capitol Police and the Department of Motor Vehicles have recently enacted new regulations that cover permitting and traffic flow for motorcoaches.

Motorcoaches are precluded from traveling within certain locations on and around the grounds of the U.S. Capitol and utilizing many of the residential streets in the Capitol Hill Historic District. Motorcoach operators are also required to obtain permits for operation in the District. For up-to-date information on all motorcoach news, information and regulations, visit GoDCGo.com.
