Express Bus Between Anacostia and Dupont Circle Proposed
A study team that will soon make recommendations to WMATA’s Board of Directors has proposed a limited-stop bus, which would run from the Anacostia Metro to Dupont Circle through the U Street Corridor, according to Greater Greater Washington.
The proposed 99 bus line would follow the same route as the 90 bus (until the western section when it would turn down Connecticut Avenue), but make only about a third of the stops and run just during peak hours.
The interesting thing about the 99 bus is that, without changes to certain street designs, the proposed line would not be that much faster than the current 90 service:
[The proposal] recommends adding transit signal priority, which can delay reds and extend greens for buses. Additionally, many stops would be relocated so that they are at the far side of intersections. With the repositioning of stops and the removal of some parking spaces, the 99 will have more opportunities to pass local-stopping 90 and 92 buses.
