At its Oct. 22 meeting, ANC 3G devoted its entire meeting to discussing a proposal to reroute the crosstown E2 bus.
Some residents want the E2 buses to travel down Military Road NW rather than McKinley Street NW, and some residents also want to eliminate five E2 buses after midnight. The bus route terminates at the Friendship Heights Metro station. Several McKinley Street residents spoke in favor of the proposal, saying the buses create too much noise. Some Military Road residents spoke against it, saying their street already has more than twice as much traffic as McKinley Street.
In recent months, the buses had been going down Military Road because of the reconstruction of McKinley Street. The reconstruction is now completed.
The ANC plans to invite a representative from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority to its Nov. 12 meeting and discuss the results of area ridership studies.
