We thought readers would be happy to hear about the addition of a badly needed additional transportation option starting in March. The new express bus line, the G9, will run from Mt. Rainer to 14th Street NW along Rhode Island Avenue.
According to this story in Greater Greater Washington:
The G9 will run every 15 minutes and only during rush hours (from 6 am to 9 am and 3 pm to 7 pm, Monday through Friday).
Metro points out that service will run both directions during those hours, unlike some other routes that only run one direction during peak hours. The agency is in the process of developing printable timetables and maps.
The G9 is coming to Rhode Island Avenue in March 2017! We remain in close contact with WMATA on it and it remains on schedule for March 2017 pic.twitter.com/SsfH3eiMQi
