WMATA schedules public meetings for RIA/Baltimore Ave bus lines

Rhode Island Ave Line Existing Routes 062013

WMATA has scheduled the first round of public meetings for the Metrobus Rhode Island Avenue-Baltimore Avenue Corridor Study to solicit input from riders to identify and evaluate transit service problems in order to develop improvements for the bus routes (G8, 81, 82, 83, 84, 86, and T18) operating in the corridor. The meetings are the next step in the project, which started soliciting public input earlier this summer with a ridership survey.

The public meetings are open to all members of the public, and no advance registration is required.  These meetings will be “open house” style.  Participants may arrive any time between 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm, as no presentation will be given.  Instead, participants will be able to review display boards and speak individually with the project team about rider survey results and service issues and concerns.  This feedback will lead to the development of service improvement options for the corridor, so please don’t miss this opportunity to share your thoughts and your transportation needs with WMATA!

The meetings will be held on the following dates at the locations listed below:
