This morning, I sent off a letter to WMATA with my office’s Ward 5 Bus Network Task Force recommendations on the Better Bus Draft Visionary Network. I am very proud of the substantive, constructive feedback this task force produced. Improving the frequency and reliability of bus service in Ward 5 and across DC is my top transportation priority. Compared to residents of WMATA’s service area, Metrobus customers are particularly likely to be a person of color, low income, non-English speaker, or carless. Riding the bus is one of the safest and cleanest ways to get around. It’s also accessible to most residents. I believe DC will only succeed in reaching its goals of eliminating traffic deaths and injuries and securing carbon neutrality if we make a world-class bus system.
