Commuters headed back to work after the Labor Day holiday have run into yellow signs announcing the closure of some of their preferred bus stops. Metro’s plan to reduce the number of bus stops on the #14 route took effect over the weekend, and have resulted in 16 fewer places to catch the bus here in the Central District.
That’s two fewer than was originally proposed three weeks ago. Some other stops were also shuffled around based on rider feedback:
- The 18th & Jackson stop in front of the increasingly busy business district on Jackson was kept open, and the 16th & Jackson stop was closed instead.
- The stops at 28th & Jackson will be kept open
