Make your voice heard on Rhode Island Ave Bus Service!

FoRIA’s got the scoop here, so I’ll let them lay it out.

WMATA has scheduled the first round of public meetings for the Metrobus Rhode Island Avenue-Baltimore Avenue Corridor Study to solicit input from riders to identify and evaluate transit service problems in order to develop improvements for the bus routes (G8, 81, 82, 83, 84, 86, and T18) operating in the corridor. The meetings are the next step in the project, which started soliciting public input earlier this summer with a ridership survey.

The public meetings are open to all members of the public, and no advance registration is required.  These meetings will be “open house” style.  Participants may arrive any time between 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm, as no presentation will be given.  Instead, participants will be able to review display boards and speak individually with the project team about rider survey results and service issues and concerns.  This feedback will lead to the development of service improvement options for the corridor, so please don’t miss this opportunity to share your thoughts and your transportation needs with WMATA!

WMATA proposes bus service cuts for Woodridge and Langdon

Earlier in November, WMATA issued several proposed route changes for the upcoming year. These changes include rerouting the B8 and B9 buses so they no longer serve Franklin St NE and essentially changing the E2 and E3 buses into an extension of the current D4 line.
