Funding for low income commuters
The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board Wednesday unanimously approved funding for 10 projects designed to improve the mobility of disabled riders and low-income commuters.
One project will provide early-morning bus service from the Southern Avenue Metro to National Harbor.
The service will cost more than $222,000 over two years. It will be paid for using federal and county funds.
Employees who work at the waterfront resort have complained to Metro for about a year, asking the agency to restore the original NH-1 bus route. Metro changed the route last summer, the only form of public transportation to the mixed-use development of hotels, restaurants, art galleries, swanky condominiums and high-end stores.
