A Bit More Of A Rush

Lately, we’ve been hearing (and complaining) a lot about fare increases in the DC Metro and bus system.

Many commuters are rethinking their options. The cost of gas and of parking at or near a downtown office building is often weighed against the inconvenience and cost of public transportation and commuter lots. We’re glad the balance hasn’t tipped back in favor of the car yet. At least that’s what it seems like–even most of our suburban buyers now prefer locations near a Metro station or major bus lines.

That said, there’s some good news out from WMATA this week: a new schedule called “Rush+” that brings some smart improvements for rush hour traffic in both the density and routing of Metro trains. Check it out in the little video below! And if you are looking for a house or condo near Metro, click here.

    Looks like a nice development. How do you think the cost is?

    Brigida – no problem! As you said, it’s an ongoing and endless debate! At least in this area, it seems that for many people, public transportation is beginning to win the game.
