Why are Metro buses idling for long periods of time at the Petworth Metro Stop?
I’ve noticed a lot lately that Metro buses will sit running for hours at a time at the Petworth Metro station, and probably at many other stops around town. This also happens a lot every night when buses aren’t even supposed to be running (i.e. 3am). It makes it very difficult to sleep with my house windows open because of the diesel fumes and the noise. I don’t understand how this is necessary if schedules are managed better. Is there any valid reason why this is happening?
