Removing stops puts undue burden on those with the fewest resources

I direct an organization dedicated to providing assistance to the most homeless and low income members of our community. Our service center is located at the corner of 16th and Newton Streets. The removal of the 16th and Newton Street bustop will create unnecessary hardship for our clients and the community at large who utilize this stop frequently to access services. Many people use the bus for convenience, but the vast majority of our client community use the buses out of necessity because it is the most affordable way to travel. Removing stops puts and undue burden on those with the fewest resources and who rely on the bus system to travel. I know this cannot be your intent but it is the result of your proposed action. Please reconsider your plan in order to avoid hurting the most vulnerable members of our community.

Because I use to ride the S2and S4 when I was a teenager and went to Alice Deal middle school , Dc does not have school buses so we has to take pubic transportation to school, I sign this petition to get the bus stops on 16 street.

Please know that there are numbers of people who use the Newton Street bus stops in order to access services at St Stephen's Church, and a significant proportion have mobility constraints that would make walking from a more distant bus-stop a serious/painful difficulty. Thank you for your consideration.

Alot of elderly and disabled folks use these bus stops to access the community services offered at St. Stephens Church on 16th and Newton. Eliminating these stops will be a major hardship for them.

I have a personal stake in this issue, as a regular user of the S2 and S4 buses, but I am more concerned about the impact on handicapped riders.

I value being connected with the rest of the city in multiple ways without a car.
