E6 (Chevy Chase) Bus Line: Save the existing frequency and span of service
Docket #B13-02: Proposed Metrobus Service & Tariff Changes; September 16-19, 2013
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) should retain the current frequency and span of service between Friendship Heights to Knollwood Retirement Center. This E6 route has served the Chevy Chase DC & MD area and beyond for decades. Hundreds of residents use the Chevy Chase line every day. The E6 ridership has increased by approximately 25% since 2008. For many in the Chevy Chase area, and beyond, the E6 route is a vital transportation link. Seniors, DC students, and daily commuters all depend on reliable and frequent E6 bus service. The undersigned citizens who depend on the public transportation services provided by WMATA for their mobility, are writing to ask you to support our efforts to retain the existing frequency and span of service of this important route and to vigorously oppose Metro's plan to reduce the frequency and span of service for the E6 bus.
