Metro Bus Changes Coming for RIA

busIf you ride any of the Metro buses along Rhode Island Ave NE, you will want to attend the upcoming public hearings on proposed new routes and options.

Here is the information regarding the new public meetings:

Metro will be holding the two more public meetings for this project on November 12 and 13.  You’re invited!

The study team will be showing a set of improvement options – including potential new routes and services – and wants to get your feedback on them.

If you’re a rider of Metrobus routes G8, T18, 81, 82, 83, 84, or 86, please come to one of the meetings and let us know which options you would like to see recommended to the Metro Board for approval!

The dates, times, and locations of the two meetings 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)

No presentation will be given at the meetings.  They will be “open house” format, meaning that you can arrive any time between 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm to review the improvement options and talk with project team members.  We would like to get feedback about these preliminary plans from as many riders as possible before completing the final report and submitting recommendations to the Metro Board in 2014.

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!

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