Dear PoPville,

My next bus is not working and I was wondering if others have heard reports. I keep getting a “connection error” for all of the lines that go up and down Columbia road.

Also wondering if you or the crowd know of any reliable and mobile alternatives to next bus.

Thanks and have a happy new year!

Some readers had mentioned last week in a rant/revel that there were having problems as well. The Washington Examiner reports:

Thousands of Metro riders who rely on a smartphone app to tell them when their next Metrobus is slated to arrive have been left in the dark after a divorce between tech companies took a nasty turn. NextBus DC, a popular app available in both a free and paid version, went dead on the evening of Dec. 20 when the company that provides the data stream pulled the plug.

I’ve had luck typing nextbus.com into a browser and it works for me.

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
