DDOT/WMATA Propose Change in Bus Stop Location

At the May 11, 2016, meeting of ANC1A, I introduced a resolution requesting that both DDOT and WMATA seek a new location for the northbound bus stop currently located on the east side of Georgia Avenue between Otis Place and Princeton Place. The request was based on the negative impact the noise and exhaust fumes are having on the outdoor spaces of Fish in the ‘Hood and EatsPlace.  In response to those concerns WMATA and DDOT agreed to propose relocation of the northbound bus stop on Georgia Ave. at Otis Place to the near side of Quebec Place. What do people think? Is this a good alternative location?

    Very good idea, especially since that church generates no foot traffic during the week, leaving plenty of space for queing.

  2. AER Says:

    Agreed, what Parakeet said.

  3. Pworth Says:

    Seems strange to have a bus stop <1 block from the next one to the north (across New Hampshire on Georgia). Why not just remove it all together?
