the 16 has buses that run through to downtown (on 14th street I think) - thats such a frequent line, you can do that with direct buses that bypass the pentagon, and still have high frequency buses TO the pentagon (for people going to pentagon, or to parts of DC where metro is more convenient than the direct bus on 14th street.

The 16F provides that service during the rush hours only - in the mornings it provides service from Culmore all the way in to the Federal Triangle (yes, via the 14th Street Bridge; and in the afternoons, it is possible to take the 16F in the reverse direction). Mid-days it is a replacement for the old 13A, and only runs between the Pentagon and D.C.

Then we have the 16Y, which runs from the Columbia Pike corridor into D.C. via the T. Roosevelt Bridge.

It's an old-fashioned rush hour peak-direction-flow-only limited-stop bus line (and please don't get me wrong because I wrote old-fashioned, I think such bus service is great).

Peak-direction-flow-only as in inbound to D.C. in the mornings and outbound from D.C. in the afternoons.
