In January, a bus from the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (MATA) to the nearby Georgetown, Virginia, station had to make an unscheduled stop on the route because of a weather emergency.
The trip was cancelled after three hours because of the weather emergency and was replaced by an alternate route, which was also delayed, but the delay had no impact on the number of passengers on board.MATA is a public transportation agency, but its buses are owned by private companies.
The company that runs the buses is the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA).
It is a federal agency, not a private company.
On January 14, the Metro’s board of directors voted unanimously to scrap the schedule, saying the new schedule would be more efficient and cost-effective.
WMATA spokesperson Susan McManus told the Washington Examiner that the agency has “not made any changes to our schedule.”MATA has been working on an updated schedule for the future, McManuses said.
“We have had two weather emergencies in the last six months, both in our region.
So we have some good data on where we are on weather.
We are aware of some of the concerns that we have raised.”
The bus schedule is an important part of WMATA’s bus schedule.
The agency estimates that the average daily ridership on buses is about 2,000.
On January 14th, WMATA had estimated that the estimated daily riderships on buses would be between 1,800 and 2,200.
The new schedule for January 19th has not been released yet, but McManusa told the Examiner that “it’s been finalized and is being finalized.
We will be releasing that tomorrow.”
McManus did not provide details on when the new schedules will be made public, but a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation, which oversees WMATA, said in a statement to the Examiner, “We are in the process of releasing new schedules.”
According to the Washington Post, “Metro has had two major weather emergencies during the past six months and it has been clear that a new bus schedule would allow us to keep more buses on the road and provide riders with more service.
We have not made any new decisions to eliminate or alter the current schedules.”
Metro’s board is scheduled to meet on February 4.
