Meetings for Metrobus Routes X1, X2 & X3

Dear DC Residents, Metrobus Riders, and Community Groups:

You are cordially invited to attend two public meetings that will be held in July in support of the Metrobus Benning Road-H Street Line Study. The project is sponsored by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) in partnership with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), and will identify and implement bus service improvements for Metrobus routes X1, X2, and X3.

The purpose of the meeting is to hear rider comments, questions, and suggestions about ways to improve transit service along the Benning Road-H Street corridor. Also, the project team will discuss the preliminary results of the rider survey that was distributed on the X1, X2, and X3 routes on June 25.

Public meeting dates, times, and locations:

Tuesday, July 14, 2009
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Thursday, July 16, 2009

The program for both meetings will consist of an open house from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm and a presentation and group exercise from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. The meetings are open to the public, and no RSVP is necessary. The facilities are wheelchair accessible.

We will be relying on feedback from meeting participants to guide our study efforts to improve bus services for these routes. We encourage you to participate in this important project and hope to see you there!
