From the October 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
New diesel-powered Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle (GUTS) buses are causing a racket along their Wisconsin Avenue route, according to someone who lives and works nearby. The fleet of 16 buses, which stop in the 2100 and 2200 blocks of Wisconsin before heading south to campus, was replaced last winter. That’s when residents of condo units at 2111 Wisconsin Ave. started noticing loud, roaring engine noise from GUTS buses several times an hour, a tipster tells us. Calls and emails of complaint to the university’s Office of Transportation Management have yielded no noticeable action, the tipster added.
Robin Morey, vice president of planning and facilities for the university, told us that he had not heard any complaints about the the buses, but that now that he is aware of neighbors’ concerns, he would investigate. Georgetown maintains a 24/7 community help line for neighborhood residents with quality-of-life concerns at 202-687-8413.
