Bus systems are eyeing lower fares, leaving passengers and advocates to wonder at what cost

As #transit operators face ridership and #COVID19 challenges, experts and riders are wondering if lowering fares will help or hurt in the long run. Bus systems across the #WashingtonDC region are reexamining fares to address income inequalities and racial disparities as they try to lure riders back. Washington Post gives you the details:
http://ow.ly/q4bi50GPjRZ

The pandemic and social justice protests have spurred the focus on lowering or eliminating fares on public transit.

Metro Invited Media To See How It Inspects 7000-Series Train Wheels. Here's What We Learned

Metro Forward (WMATA) gave reporters a demo of how wheels on its trains 🚄 are inspected, showing the tools and processes technicians go through to make sure they're in compliance. The Washington Metro Safety Rail Commission says WMATA needs to come up with a plan to address the wheel issues before 7000-series trains return to the rails. ⤵

Testing is ongoing and Metro still isn't saying when to expect those trains back on the system.

As E-Bikes Speed Up, a Policy Dilemma Looms

Bloomberg CityLab asks “From a policymaking perspective, should a 37-mph e-bike still count as a #bicycle, or should it be regulated like faster vehicles with a throttle?” Increasing speeds of #ebikes could cause regulators to get tougher on this active #transportation option.
http://ow.ly/m7tR50GGcyn #multimodalsolutions

The newest electric bikes can go much faster than pedal-only riders, which could spur a backlash from pedestrians and a crackdown from regulators.

We look forward to the breaking of ground with our friends in Loudoun County Government on this regionally significant project, addressing #traffic congestion in the corridor, and improving capacity and safety on existing roadway networks within the Dulles South area. ⤵
Virginia Department of Transportation has recognized Northstar Boulevard as part of a north/south Corridor of Statewide Significance due to its potential to reduce congestion on parallel north/south routes between I-95 and Dulles International Airport and to connect travelers to activity centers in Loudoun County and beyond. Nearly $65M in NVTA regional revenues, as well as NVTA local revenues, are being utilized to fund the full Northstar Boulevard – Shreveport Drive to Tall Cedars Parkway project.

For outer jurisdictions like Loudoun County Government and Prince William County Government, Virginia, priority is reduce #traffic congestion. This emphasizes there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for the region.
