Intercity buses moving stops
Construction will soon begin on the former site of the Washington Convention Center, displacing intercity bus services that use what is now a giant parking lot as a stop.
On March 1 Megabus will move its stop from the parking lot at H Street NW to the parking lot at the northwest corner of K and North Capitol streets NW. Boltbus is moving to a location at New Jersey and F streets NW. Boltbus already uses Union Station as a stop.
Capital Business's Jonathan O'Connell reports that construction on CityCenter DC is scheduled to begin in late March or early April on a 10-acre site bounded Ninth and 11th streets NW to the east and west and by H Street to the south. Development plans include 520,000 square feet of office space, 458 apartments, 216 condominiums, 185,000 square feet of retail and 1,570 underground parking spaces. The stretch along New York Avenue to the north is scheduled to be developed later. The project is estimated to cost between $700 million and $950 million.
Megabus announced last week that it was expanding D.C. service to Philadelphia and express service to New York.
The news of the moves was reported Wednesday by Washington City Paper.
