Suggestions Sought to Improve Bus Stop at New Hampshire and Georgia

As part of the paver repair and replacement work that will begin next week along New Hampshire Avenue along the CVS, the bus stop will be temporarily moved a few feet so that it remains in service while the work is underway. However, when it moves back there has been some discussion on where it should be located.

Currently, it is a heavily used bus stop and frequently has so many people waiting for the bus that pedestrians walk behind the bus shelter rather than use the sidewalk. The question thus becomes, should the permanent location of the bus shelter remain where it is, be located closer to the street,or located further away from the street? Also, should the sidewalk be widened in this area to accommodate both bus patrons and pedestrians.

DDOT is still refining the process to request a bus stop relocation in coordination with WMATA, so this is a great opportunity to hear from the community on where you think the stop should be located. Please be as specific as possible with suggested locations for the stop. Your ideas will assist in finding a permanent location for the shelter.
