NEWS: 1/28/13 Discussion with Metro re: 16th Street Bus Routes

Come meet with Metro this Monday (28th) evening, 7:30pm @ the JCC (16th & Q)

Many East Dupont residents have been sharing their concerns about their morning commutes – especially on the 16th Street bus line – the line with the highest ridership in the District.

Neighbors report that south of Columbia Road, these S2/S4 buses are too often full and pass by without picking up passengers.  This is especially difficult on cold winter mornings, but it is a problem year-round.

Jim Hamre, Director of Bus Planning for Metro, has agreed to meet with residents this Monday at 7:30pm at the Jewish Community Center (16th & Q) to discuss this problem and any other transit issues residents may have (14th street buses too).
