Metro to Eliminate Union Station-Navy Yard Bus
The Metro board plans to vote Thursday to end service on the N22 route, which many people used either to connect with their jobs in the Navy Yard area of Southeast Washington or to reach Nationals Park. The District intends to start a new route along that corridor using its Circulator buses.
This is similar to a move made in February when the board agreed to end service in March on Route 98, another District service that links Adams Morgan and the U Street corridor. In this case as well, the District is planning to launch a Circulator bus service to link those two entertainment hubs, though the new Circulator will not duplicate the route of the 98 bus.
Metro and the District Department of Transportation say that there already is enough Metrobus service to handle passenger needs in the area. Specifically, they say, people can use the 90,92 and 93 buses.
The District has been subsidizing both the N22 and 98 routes. It will start to subsidize the new Circulators it will establish in those two corridors this spring.
