Start allowing shuttle buses at the Metro again

UPDATE: We are encouraged that WMATA seems to be backing down (see petition update).  But stay tuned.  They haven't engendered trustworthiness...

We are very disappointed with the arbitrary and short-sighted decision to keep the King Farm shuttle buses from loading and unloading passengers from in front of the Metro. First, this decision was not announced by Metro and it has thrown our community for a loop - both residents and businesses. Secondly, it is not consistent as buses shuttling federal workers remain unchanged. Third, but most importantly, it results in people crossing 355 and other busy highways - many of them like myself with disabilities. Many people also use the shuttle with their kids.

Surely there must be some way to allow access to emergency vehicles without discontinuing access to the shuttle?

This was a poorly made decision. It reeks of someone making the decision because they could without thinking of consequences or the hardships caused to others.

I urge you to sign the petition and pass it on to others as well - they need to hear from us.

I am glad that progress seems to be made. But more needs to be done so that service is not disrupted.
