Metro Invites Riders to Comment on Proposed Metrobus J12 and K12 Changes
Metro's Office of Bus Planning in collaboration with Prince George's County is conducting a study designed to improve service on bus routes J12 and K12 which serve 3,300 riders in the Forestville area and provide access to key transfer points such as Addison Road, Branch Avenue, and Suitland Metrorail stations, and Penn Mar and Centre at Forestville shopping centers.
In November 2016, Metrobus J12 and K12 riders provided input on their rider experiences. Based on the feedback, along with additional analysis, Metro is proposing the following service changes.
