Road Diet Watch: More bus lanes coming to DC streets in 2020

More bus lanes are in D.C.’s future amid a region-wide push to get buses out of traffic and improve rider experience, while also encouraging more commuters to use mass transit.

Officials from the District Department of Transportation and Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority met in recent weeks to identify the highest-priority streets for new bus lanes and other changes for fast results.

“I expect that, in the coming months, we’ll be announcing future projects, some on the larger scale, but we are really looking for those smaller, quicker implementation opportunities,” DDOT director and Metro board member Jeff Marootian said.
