Metro holding meetings on buses
Metro is hosting three public meetings this month in Northern Virginia to discuss the transit system's Metrobus service study examining four bus lines. The meetings will be held on Wednesday, Thursday and Nov. 17. All meetings will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., with an open house scheduled from 6:30 to 7 p.m. before the general meeting from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
At each meeting, Metro will offer preliminary service recommendations that come from assessments of transit service and traffic operations and input from riders, bus drivers, service planners and others.
- The meeting on Wednesday will be at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Building (4301 Wilson Blvd., Arlington). It will involve discussions about the McLean-Crystal City (23A and 23C) and Ballston-Bradlee-Pentagon (25A, 25C and 25D) lines.
- The meeting on Thursday at Franklin Sherman Elementary (6630 Brawner St., McLean). Discussions there will center on the McLean-Crystal City Line (23A and 23C).
- The meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 17, will take place at Shirlington Public Library (4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington). These discussions will involve the McLean-Crystal City (23A and 23C) and Ballston-Bradlee-Pentagon (25A, 25C and 25D) lines.
The study began in June and is expected to be completed by the end of the year, according to Metro. It also involves the Bladensburg Road-Anacostia (B2) and Oxon Hill-Suitland (D12, D13 and D14) lines.
