Metro is proposing changes to the L1 and L2 bus lines that run up and down Connecticut Avenue and it is seeking feedback on those changes.
These are the proposals:
Proposal A: Convert all Route L1 buses to Route L2 buses. All buses between Chevy Chase Circle and Farragut Square would run along the L2 route in order to simplify service options and increase weekday frequency between Chevy Chase Circle and Farragut Square. (Metro doesn’t specify but it would seem the L1 route would be eliminated.)
Proposal B: On weekends only, terminate every other Route L2 trip at Woodley Park. Between Chevy Chase Circle to Woodley Park, buses would run every 20 minutes instead of every 30 minutes, BUT between Woodley Park and Farragut Square, buses would run every 60 minutes instead of every 30 minutes.
Proposal C: Consolidate bus stops that have low levels of use and are close to other stops to improve travel speeds. See Map of Proposed Bus Stops for Consolidation.
Metro is also proposing changes to the 42 and 43 lines. Find more information on these and the L2 changes, and links to the surveys here.
