Proposed E6 Bus Service Reductions

The E6 Metrobus is an important east-west service for many Rollingwood residents who depend on the bus to access DC and the Friendship Heights metro station.  Unfortunately, Metro/DDOT is proposing to reduce the frequency and span of service for the E6 bus between Knollwood and Friendship Heights. While the E6 ridership has increased by 27% since 2010, Metro/DDOT are still attempting to modify this route. Everyone from seniors to students will be impacted if this proposal is approved.
