Dear Members of the Georgetown Community,
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) recently announced its proposed “Visionary Network” of new Metrobus routes, which may impact your access to Georgetown University’s Main campus via public transit.
We encourage you to review the map of WMATA’s proposed routes to learn how it might impact you and our Georgetown community. For example, the proposal would eliminate the existing direct G2 Metrobus route to the University front gates at 3700 O St. NW and Car Barn. DC100, the newly-proposed route, would combine the G2 and D2 routes, and the closest stop to the front gates would be at the intersection of 35th and Q Sts. NW.
We encourage all community members who are concerned about accessible public transit access to the Main and Medical Center campuses to submit a comment on the G2 route and other routes of interest by June 18. For example, if you wish to express any concerns about the elimination of the 3700 O St. NW stop of the G2 you could “place” your comment directly at that location by:
- At the top of the Comment on Your Route page, select the G2 line.
- In the “Add Comment box” on the right side of the page, click the “I dislike” button and place your comment near the front gates.
- In the “New Comment” pop-up window, type why WMATA should not remove this current stop.
- Click the “Submit” button.
