A bill to break the bubble
Introduced by Mary Beth Brosnihan (SFS ’13), the bill encourages the extension of Georgetown University Transport Shuttle weekend service. The proposed schedule advocates operating hours from 6am until 1am on Saturdays and Sundays for Dupont and Rosslyn lines, with buses running every hour. Currently, GUTS operates on Saturdays from 12pm to 6pm, with buses running every hour and 20 minutes.
“It has been really annoying that there hasn’t been extensive service on weekends. Georgetown really is a bubble, and transportation should not be a reason why people are not exploring D.C. This resolution will decrease the time and difficulty it takes to get off the Hilltop,” said Brosnihan.
Jack Schmitt (COL ’15) added, “Many courses I take require me to go off campus to museums and such. If this university’s motto is cura personalis, it would only make sense that they support us going and exploring these various places.”
