Watch a Teen Catch a Ride on the Back of a DC Metrobus

December 11, 2018

A video shared on Twitter shows a teenage boy clinging to the back of an X2 Metrobus as it zooms down Benning Road in Northeast D.C. 

Local artist Rasta Tahj captured the now-viral video on December 10. 

"I was driving home from work and I look up, and there's a guy on the back of the bus," he told NBC Washington, who later reported the rider is 15 years old.

Tahj said he was going about 40 mph at the time and thinks the teen hopped off the back of the bus when it stopped at Minnesota Avenue.

Only in D.C., indeed!
