ANC Preview: Next Bus Edition

Next week ANC2E will meet for its April session. By comparison to last month’s brawl over another neighborhood’s traffic changes, this meeting should be downright serene.

One item caught GM’s attention: “Electronic Bus arrival signage in the Georgetown commercial area”

Going back to the Gabe Klein era, DDOT has been floating proposals to install screens at some bus stops that would inform riders of the nearby transportation options and include predicted bus arrival times based upon NextBus. Only a few locations have seen them installed yet, though.

GM doesn’t know why this is on the ANC agenda. It seems unlikely that Georgetown would get one of these screens, given the restrictive signage rules we have. (Don’t get GM wrong, he’s love to see them here, but it’s unlikely).

Until then, we’ll just have to keep using smartphone apps.

The only other items that catch GM’s attention are the new Czech restaurant, Capitol Prague, and the new consignment shop, Reddz Trading.

Here’s the agenda:
