Note from Vice Chair Zach Teutsch, regarding the DDOT / WMATA proposal:
DDOT is considering making very substantial changes on 16th Street, in large part to improve bus service speed. They will be presenting about this at the next ANC meeting. They have a specific question for us. As part of the proposal they'd like to route empty buses on Arkansas to return to the bus barn at 14th just north of Buchanan. My impression is that they think this will improve service and lead to better functioning buses for all of us. They'd like our feedback generally, but especially on that aspect since it could specifically affect those who live near Arkansas Avenue.
