And the Phillies won the World Series! Yeah, I’m a little late on this one but I was waiting to see if could get a photo of one of the new shuttles. Anyway, the blog Frozen Tropics: Shuttle Info posted all about this:

“H Street Northeast business leaders launched the new H Street Shuttle Wednesday, January 14th in front of the Atlas Performing Arts Center, 1333 H Street, NE. Noting concern about transportation during the multi-year H Street “Great Streets” streetscape project, and the need for improved connections for H Street businesses, Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells worked with the DC Department of Transportation to identify funds to create a shuttle service for the corridor. The shuttle service will provide express services connecting the Gallery Place and Minnesota Avenue Metro Stations, with a limited number of stops on H Street, NE and run on an approximate 30 minute headway schedule.”

A reader also wrote me saying:

“As a resident of Columbia Heights, I’m pumped I can get to H Street in a more efficient manner (hopping the Green Line then shuttling). Hopefully, it will be timely, convenient, etc. Just thought your readers would be interested.”

I think this is fantastic news. I have a buddy who lives down there and I really enjoy the Pug, Rock and Roll Hotel and the Argonaut. However, it always has been a bit of pain getting there. Hmm, I guess this would be a good time to ask – what’s your favorite bar/destination on H Street, NE? Will the shuttle from the Chinatown metro increase your trips there?
