WASHINGTON (AP) — Metro is planning to hold five public hearings next month on proposed bus service improvements.
The transit agency would like to make improvements that include updating schedules to reflect road conditions and traffic patterns and increasing the frequency of bus departures in high-demand corridors.
Metro also would like to realign underperforming routes or equipment to maximize the number of seats available to customers.
Hearings will be held on Oct. 11 at the Department of Housing and Community Development in Washington and Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School in Falls Church, Va. A hearing will be held Oct. 12 at the First United Methodist Church in Hyattsville, Md.
Hearings will be held on Oct. 13 at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Washington and at the Fairlington Recreation Center in Arlington, Va.
