Transit Disruptions for Sept. 11-15, 2017

Across Washington, D.C., people will commemorate the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks with moments of silence, flag-raisings and other services. Meanwhile, Irma-related showers are possible in the D.C. area on Tuesday and Wednesday. They’ll be nothing like the hurricanes ravaging Florida, but we could still get significant rain that could lead to some flooding.

And Finally… Metrobus Driver Suspended After Video Shows Him Reading the Newspaper While Driving

Myles Hill, the passenger who posted the video to Twitter, said he spotted what looked like a newspaper in the bus driver’s hands Friday afternoon, shortly after boarding the F6 in College Park about 2 p.m. At first, he couldn’t believe what he was seeing, so he turned to a friend: “I asked her, ‘is that bus driver reading the paper?’ and she said ‘oh my gosh, yeah!’” Hill, a 20-year-old University of Maryland student, said Sunday. “He’s focusing on the paper; he should be focusing on the roads.” Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said the driver was promptly identified and placed on paid leave while Metro conducts an investigation.
