Metro to Hold Second Round of Public
Meetings for Metrobus 14th Street Line Study
Community members, District planners, and
Metro to discuss bus service improvement options
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), in partnership with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), has announced the second round of public meetings for the Metrobus 14th Street Line Study.
Metro and DDOT are relying on feedback from participants to shape preliminary recommendations later this spring. The study will culminate in a set of recommendations that will be presented to the public and the Metro Board for approval in summer 2012.
The Metrobus 14th Street Line routes run from Takoma Metro Station west to 14th Street, then south on 14th to McPherson Square. The 52 and 54 routes then continue on different paths to L’Enfant Plaza. The 14th Street Line carries approximately 14,000 passengers on a typical weekday, making it one of the busiest corridors in the Metrobus system.
The 14th Street Line Study is the latest in a series of comprehensive evaluations of Metrobus “Priority Corridors.” Metro and its partner agencies in the Washington metropolitan region have been studying service and operations on the system's busiest lines since 2006, and making gradual improvements including restructured routes, limited-stop services, and other enhancements.
Both meeting locations are located on the 14th Street Line and are open to all members of the public; no advance registration is required. The meetings will be conducted in an “open house” style, meaning that participants may arrive any time between 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. No presentation will be given; instead, participants will be able to speak individually with the project team about options for improvements that are now being evaluated.
Spanish translators and visual materials in Spanish will be available.
