Hearing on TheBus routes
Greater Greater Washington reports that Prince George's County is considering changes to four routes for TheBus, the county's public transit system. GGW analyzes the effects of the changes and the reasoning behind the proposal.
According to Matt Johnson, "These changes are planned to improve ridership and to work with the revised Metrobus service plan adopted by the WMATA Board in late September."
The four routes that may be changed include: 11 (Greenbelt Metro Station), 15 (Greenbelt Center), 15 Express (Old Greenbelt) and 16 (Greenbelt East). Speakers will have two minutes for public comment. Comments can also be submitted through Nov. 12. The Department of Public Works/Transportation can be reached at 301.883.5656.
The meeting is Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. in Room 201, the Greenbelt Community Center, 15 Crescent Road.
