D.C. Metro urged to improve late night bus service

Posted on July 26, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Following a report that service-industry workers heading home after 10 p.m. are often left behind by overcrowded buses, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) is being urged to improve its late-night bus service, The Washington Post reported. Despite buses in the area being scheduled to run, on average, every seven-and-a-half minutes, riders often wait more than 30 minutes for a bus.

Metro officials told The Post that the transit agency is increasing supervision of the night service in the corridor and is working to double the number of extra-long buses on the route to eight in the next two months. For the full story, click here.
