Service Evaluation Studies: Purpose of the Bowie Lines Evaluation (en Español)

The purpose of this evaluation is to identify the strategic needs for program and facilities; review capacity, productivity, reliability, and quality of service indicators; and recommend changes that will improve service for Metrobus routes B21, B22, B24, B25, B27, B29, and B31. In cooperation with Prince George's County, the City of Bowie, and the Maryland Department of Transportation, Metro is reviewing the "Bowie Lines" to improve service efficiency and coverage. This involved examining overall performance with the aim of improving service reliability, frequency, crowding, travel time, bus stop amenities, and customer communications.

Study Process

The Metrobus Service Evaluation Study for the "Bowie Lines" has three main components:

  1. Reviewing current transit operations and traffic conditions;
  2. Reaching out to stakeholders, transit riders, and members of the public;
  3. Developing recommendations and an implementation strategy.

The study team will analyze the input it receives from rider survey respondents and public meeting participants, and prepare a memo that incorporates the results of both.
