Be heard!

From one of our Twitter followers, it sounds like buses are effectively cut:

"MoCo General Hospital. Two Y9's at the stop. One has NO driver. The other switches OUT of Service."

"Waited almost an hour at Glenmont for a "Y" bus going to Olney. Never came. Got on the MoCo RideOn only to be passed by the Y7. Suckage."

If you're concerned about what The Washington Post calls "the biggest cuts back in [bus] service in many years," this is your week to let Metro know how you feel.
There will be six public hearings in the District, Md. and Va. All start at 6:30p.m.
