The Metrobus 60s Lines Study (en español)
- Who is involved? The study is a partnership between Metro and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT).
- What is being studied? The following Metrobus routes:
60, 64: Fort Totten-Petworth Line
62, 63: Takoma-Petworth Line
- Why was this corridor chosen for study? The 60s Lines are among the most heavily used Metrobus lines in the District of Columbia, serving over 2,700,000 riders a year. The corridor is an important link connecting the Fort Totten, Takoma, and Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro Stations with Downtown Washington at the Federal Triangle Metro Station. This study aims to provide recommendations to optimize performance along the corridor to better serve riders and link important destinations.
- When did the study begin? The study began in January 2015. Metro and its agency partners will study the line over a seven-month period and they expect to have preliminary recommendations for improvements ready for Metro Board in late 2015.
- How will service on the line be improved? To answer this question, Metro is relying on input from riders. A survey of riders is being conducted in February 2015 with public meetings to follow in Spring and Summer 2015. Please visit this page again in the coming months to learn more about the study as it progresses.
