WMATA proposes changing 100 bus routes

Metrobus riders hoping to catch a lift to Dulles Airport will have to find an alternative if Metro’s proposed service changes are approved.

The Washington Metro Area Transit Authority has proposed changing nearly 100 bus routes, Greater Greater Washington reported Tuesday.

The changes would “improve overall on-time performance and customer satisfaction, increase ridership and improve cost recovery,” according to a from WMATA statement.

WMATA justified closing the 5A route to Dulles Airport because of a declining ridership after the Silver Line opened last summer.

The changes will take effect this December if WMATA’s board approves the changes in October. The board will take community feedback into consideration when deciding on the changes. Residents can submit feedback to Metro through email, an online survey or in person at a public hearing.
