If you’re heading to the Verizon Center on Saturday to watch the Hoyas trounce (we hope) American University, your ‘best’ options for getting there—splitting a cab six ways, taking the GUTS bus to the Dupont Metro stop to Chinatown, or worst of all, taking the GUTS bus to the Rosslyn Metro stop to Metro Center to Chinatown—are all a real hassle.
But if things shake out the way Georgetown University Student Association President Calen Angert (MSB ’11) thinks they soon will, students will have a fourth, better option for getting to weekend games sometime during this men’s basketball season—buses that go directly to the Verizon Center.
Angert and his colleagues have been talking about implementing new routes for a while, but have only recently made substantial progress on the issue.
GUSA Deputy Chief of Staff for Student Life Mike Meaney (SFS ’12) recently spoke to Abe’s Transportation, which runs Georgetown’s weekend transportation, which told him that they were happy to change the routes. He is preparing to speak to the director of transportation of the Athletic Department to work out the change with them.
“I don’t know if this will get off the ground before Christmas or after Christmas,” Angert said, but they are on track to happen this season.
