The Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle (GUTS) that runs along Wisconsin Avenue is no longer making a ruckus, we hear. Residents of condos on the route had been noticing disruptive engine noise since the 16-vehicle fleet was replaced last spring. But shortly after the Gazette conveyed those concerns to the university’s veep of planning and facilities, the situation was investigated and rectified. Kudos to G.U.

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.

Columbia Mirror & Glass of Georgetown (2212 Wisconsin Ave.) will close its Glover Park location by the end of this month after 34 years. A planned rent increase was the reason, according to an employee. The business has found a new home in Springfield, Virginia.

The storefront won’t remain empty, though. Next door neighbor Georgetown Carpet (2208 Wisconsin Ave.) will be expanding into the space, its manager tells us. Both buildings are owned by KBK Associates of Potomac, according to city property records.
