From yesterday's Post "Get There" Blog
, Dr. Gridlock reports that the Maryland Transit Administration
is asking for comments from Southern Maryland commuters about how the agency should handle the diverting of buses and altering of schedules during the two-month shutdown in July and August of the Douglass Bridge
. The column says that the "the commuter bus staff is inviting riders to talk it over with them on Wednesday [JUne 6] between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Hall of States building [at 444 N. Capitol Street NW, between E and D streets], Room 283. Make sure you have a photo ID with you, because the security staff at the front desk will ask to see it." Don't forget that WMATA has already announced its plans
for altering bus routes and fares during the shutdown, and the Bridge Bucks program
has now been launched, where DDOT will
pay commuters to switch to buses, trains, or vanpools during the "Extreme Makeover."
