I would just like to state for the record that I’m pissed off about the new Metro route 49. Supposedly Metro needed to split route 7 into two pieces (from downtown south is still the 7; U District to downtown is now the 49) because it’s always late. If the bus is always late, it’s not just because it’s a long route. It’s also because the #7 bus is completely packed—whether it’s in the ID, downtown, Capitol Hill, or the U District—every single time I get on. If they split up the route and added new buses (say, every 10 minutes instead of every 15), things would actually improve. Want to complain? Have at it.
