“Just wanted to share with you and fellow readers, from Kenyon McDuffie’s facebook page last night.
“The G9 is on schedule to begin service on Rhode Island Avenue in March 2017.
The G9 will run the entire east-west length of Ward 5 along Rhode Island Avenue and connect downtown on the same route the G8 takes.”
It looks like the new G9 route got approved and will start running in March 2017. Not sure of the exact route/stops, but this is great news for ward 5 residents as it will connect Rhode Island Ave to downtown via a direct bus route. Awesome for Woodridge/Langdon/Brookland residents!”
