Alert: Bus Service Changes on 2/9

An expected 1 to 3 inches of snow may arrive in the DC area starting tonight and into Tuesday. Last Friday there were notices distributed by the Mayor’s office to announce snow removal team deployments to treat or plow streets. Additional information can be found on the DC government website.

WMATA has just announced a “Moderate Snow Plan” in effect at the start of Tuesday. No D3, D4, or D8 buses operate during a moderate snow plan. The moderate snow plan will be in effect early in the day but may change as weather and road conditions do. Please be aware and plan accordingly for a possible alternative commute if you rely on these buses in the morning. Changes will be announced on the WMATA website.

No More D3? MetroBus Service Changes Proposed

Eliminate the D3? Extend the D4 route to Kennedy Center, replacing part of the 80 bus route? More X1 and X3 buses on the route during the day?

Those are some of the proposed metro bus route changes that WMATA is considering. They will be holding public hearing number 606 on September 17, 2015 on the proposed changes. The public information session will begin at 6 pm and public hearing will be at 6:30 pm. The hearing will be held at Metro Headquarters Building 600 5th Street, NW.

The hearing is a public forum and all are invited to present their views. If you wish to speak at the hearing, please submit your name and organizational affiliation, if applicable, by email to speak@wmata.com or by phone to (202) 962-2511. You can also submit written statements by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 to writtentestimony@wmata.com.

Not ready to submit written testimony or attend the hearing? You can participate in a survey at http://www.wmata.com/betterbus. The survey opened on August 15th and will close on September 23. It includes feedback questions on the proposal and related service changes as well as demographic questions.
