Next meetings for Rhode Island Ave buses scheduled

Following up on meetings earlier this fall, WMATA has scheduled the next round of meetings on updating the Rhode Island Ave buses:

Public Meetings in November – You’re Invited! 

Metro is holding a second round of public meetings to get input from riders about a set of service improvement options to Routes G8, T18, 81, 82, 83, 84, and 86.

The dates, times, and locations are:

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 
Watha T. Daniel / Shaw Neighborhood Library
Rhode Island Avenue & 7th Street NW
Washington, DC
6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
(Across the street from Shaw Metro Station and served directly by Metrobus Routes G8, 70, and 79.)

Wednesday, November 13, 2013
Hyattsville City Hall, Municipal Building
1st Floor, Multipurpose Room
4310 Gallatin Street
Hyattsville, MD
6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
(Served by Metrobus Routes 83 and F8)

The format of the meetings will be open house, which means that no presentation will be given. Instead, participants can arrive any time between 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm to review the improvement options and talk with project team members. Metro would like to get feedback about the preliminary ideas for improvements from as many riders as possible before completing the final report and submitting the recommendations to the WMATA Board for approval.

All members of the public are invited and no RSVP is necessary. Please let your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow riders know about these public meetings!

The facilities are wheelchair accessible. A Spanish translator will be available upon request for those who prefer to communicate in Spanish.
