NYC GoBus Service Could Begin This Month from Stop Near Eastern Market
By Larry Janezich
Wednesday night, Commissioner Kirsten Oldenburg’s ANC6B Transportation Committee voted to support a public space application for use of space on Pennsylvania Avenue near 8th Street for a pickup/drop-off location for their service to New York City. The issue will go to the full ANC next Tuesday, where it is expected to receive the support of the Commission before forwarding to the DC Department of Transportation Public Space Committee.
Company representatives say the service could start in “a couple of weeks “if DDOT grants us a temporary permit”.
The 55 passenger buses will make two runs a day on most days and 3 runs a day Friday and Sunday. Fares and departure times will vary depending on the day of the week, with fares increasing during the holiday seasons. Complete information will be available as soon as the company receives the permit, on their website: https://www.gobuses.com/nyc-to-dc-va/
The stop will be the final pickup point before getting on 295 for the four hour trip to the 30th Street and 9th Avenue stop in Manhattan, on a route that starts in Capitol Heights with stops in Alexandria and L’Enfant Plaza. Company reps say buses will stop for about ten minutes at the site.
