Update on Metrobus Service

Good afternoon:
I learned the following on February 9 about the status of the R3 / C8 bus service:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The service change date is March 27, 2016. Information about changes to the C8 and R3 is below. I also attached a map showing the R3 elimination and C8 alternative service.

C8 College Park-White Flint
·         The first two weekday westbound trips leaving Glenmont Metrorail station at 6:30 AM and 7:00 AM will be extended to begin at College Park-U of MD Metrorail station.

·         These trips will depart from the College Park-U of MD Metrorail station at 5:41 AM and 6:04 AM.
·         These trips will arrive at Archives II at 5:53 AM and 6:18 AM.
R3 Greenbelt-Prince George’s Plaza
·         Route R3 will be discontinued due to low ridership.
·         See route C8 College Park-White Flint timetable for alternative service to Archives II.
·         The University of Maryland’s Shuttle-UM service is also available as an alternative for the residents of College Park, Hyattsville and Greenbelt.  Please contact the University of Maryland’s Department of Transportation Services for further information.
Best,
