Metro Wants to Hear From YOU!

October 5, 2011

October 5, 2011 -- On October 11, 12 and 13, Metro will be holding a series of public hearings regarding plans to adjust bus service to provide customers with more reliable, efficient and cost-effective service and to provide additional capacity where it is most needed. The meetings are a chance to ask Metrobus personnel questions about the proposed changes to 39 bus lines in DC, Maryland and Virginia and voice your opinion. Possible changes include eliminating or restructuring some underperforming Metrobus routes while enhancing service on other routes that tend to be crowded.

Ideas under consideration to improve and enhance bus service include:

  • Updating schedules to reflect road conditions and traffic patterns
  • Increasing the frequency of bus departures in high-demand corridors
  • Extending select routes to improve connectivity and access to local destinations
  • Realigning underperforming routes to maximize seats available to customers

More information about the proposed changes can be found at wmata.com/hearings. Changes would not be implemented earlier than mid-2012.

For all meetings, an open house will begin at 6 pm, followed by the public hearings at 6:30 pm at the following locations:
