Hearing Thursday on Crosstown Bus Routes

It's a very active time for the region's bus route planners. There's a public meeting Thursday night about the future of the popular but challenged D lines that take people east-west across Washington. The routes serve many areas that are not near Metrorail stations.

At the meeting, Metro plans to share its preliminary findings and listen to comments on its "D" Routes Study, about how to improve service on the D1, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6 and D8 lines.

The transit authority has developed a good pattern in evaluating its bus services: Listen to riders and bus drivers about what needs fixing.

The Thursday meeting, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., is on the lobby level at Metro headquarters, 600 5th St. NW. It's near the Gallery Place and Judiciary Square stations, as well stops on Metrobus routes D1, D3 and D6.

People can also submit comments and suggestions online or call the project hotline at 202-370-2915.
