Public Engagement

The project team collected responses to the mobility survey, in both English and Spanish, through online engagement as well as at 20 pop-up events that were held throughout the Washington area. The pop-up events were held at the following locations.

This map shows the locations of the 20 pop-events across Maryland, DC, and Virginia. The events are relatively evenly spread out throughout the District of Columbia and inner suburbs in the region.

What's next?

The Bus Transformation Project team will be using the information we heard from the public through the mobility survey to develop draft recommended strategies for Metrobus, which will be presented to the public in a series of open houses in the spring of 2019. There will be opportunities to discuss these draft recommendations with the project team and to submit written comments.
