Re: Chevy Chase ANC 3/4G Transportation Task Force (M4 Bus Capacity Issues)
To DDOT and WMATA,
Please note that at our duly noticed January 26, 2015 meeting, the Chevy Chase ANC (ANC 3/4G) voted 5 to 0 (a quorum being four) to submit this letter to the D.C. Department of Transportation (“DDOT”) and Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (“WMATA”). This letter is a follow up to our ANC letter from May 15, 2014, regarding our adoption of various recommendations from the Chevy Chase ANC Transportation Task Force. We herein comment further on the M4 bus, which as we noted is especially full with school children traveling to and from Deal and Wilson, while at the same time also accommodating many commuters on their way to or from Tenleytown. During peak rush hours in the morning, there is just not enough room on the M4 to accommodate both groups of bus users. At the same time, Deal (D31, 32, 33, 34) and Wilson (W45, 47) specific buses also use the Nebraska corridor as a final leg of their routes from points east in the morning, but often travel down Nebraska with many empty seats. Although students can ride any bus for free (a great benefit that we would never suggest changing), the paying non-student rider cannot use the Deal and Wilson buses. We suggest that DDOT and WMATA consider implementing the following options on a pilot or trial basis as soon as possible:
1. Provide more frequent or larger M4 buses during the peak rush hour from 7:45 AM – 8:45 AM.
2. Re-route the Deal and Wilson buses to better serve the upper reaches of M4 territory, to take weight off of student use of the M4.
3. Allow all city residents to ride on the Wilson and Deal buses.
Thank you for considering these suggestions. We look forward to your reply, perhaps at our next ANC meeting.

Dear Mayor Bowser and Council Chair Mendelson:
On the January 12, 2015, the Chevy Chase Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3/4G public meeting, the Commission voted 7 – 0 (a quorum being 4) against the proposed merger of Exelon Corporation with Pepco Holdings, Inc. Due to the many concerns expressed by our constituents, our ANC is unanimously opposed to this merger and we urge you to take all necessary and available actions to prevent it.
At the public meeting, our Commissioners heard from many constituents expressing strong opposition to the merger. The Commission’s concerns include the potential inability of Pepco’s sheltered franchise to operate in the public interest, Exelon’s national business model of selling nuclear power generation at the highest market rates, serious risks to the District’s commitment to ratepayer affordability, and the documented history of Exelon’s opposition of renewable energy deployment.
We conclude that many of Exelon’s policies are in contrast to the policies and agreements that the District has with Pepco, and would not be in the best interests of our citizens nor the DC government. As you know, DC law requires that such mergers “must not come at expense of the ratepayers,” and “must produce direct and traceable financial benefits to ratepayers.” The law also requires that the merger “must be consistent with the public interest.” We strongly believe that the proposed merger will meet none of these conditions.
Consequently, we urge you to take all necessary steps to impact the decision of the Public Service Commission regarding Formal Case 1119 to deny the proposed merger between the Exelon Corporation and Pepco Holdings, Inc.
