Metro to study congested bus routes

By Ann Scott Tyson

Metro will survey bus riders who use the congested A Line service along Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and the Georgia Avenue-Maryland Line, and will also hold public meetings in an effort to identify ways to improve the service.

Together the two bus lines are used by about 22,000 people on an average weekday, and both lines "are currently impacted by overcrowding, frequent stops, bus bunching and heavy traffic," according to a Metro news release.

Metro will study the bus lines in coming months, surveying riders, hosting public meetings, interviewing bus drivers and supervisors and gathering information on the performance of buses on the lines, and will then recommend changes.
