Charter Bus Watch: 3,000 Registered So Far
As officials try to predict how big the crowd will be at the inauguration, one obvious place to look has been at the number of charter buses. At one point several weeks ago, officials and media accounts placed the number of charter buses planning to come to Washington at more than 10,000.
So far, however, only 3,000 have registered with the District for parking spaces along city streets (there will be special zones reserved across the city for the buses). That's about one-third of the spaces the city had set aside. Post reporter Mary Beth Sheridan reports that D.C. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty seemed uncertain why the registration was lower than expected. At a news conference this morning, Fenty said: "We could see a lot of registration leading up [to the inauguration] or a lot of people who still will bring buses and not register."
