Vern Express stop to move near Funger Hall

The University will move the Vern Express stop at the corner of 23rd and H streets this summer in anticipation of the Science and Engineering Complex construction.

The stop at 23rd and H streets will be moved to G Street, between the Smith Center and Funger Hall, Alicia O’Neil Knight, senior associate vice president of operations, said at a Community Advisory Committee meeting at St. Mary’s Court Monday.

GW holds CAC meetings to communicate with local residents on neighborhood issues.

Knight said the University does not have a set timeline for the switch, but currently plans to make the change during the two-week period between Commencement and the start of summer courses.

Neighbors in attendance said they supported the move because it would mitigate traffic along H Street.

“It’s hard to get around those buses,” neighbor Ellen Becker said at the meeting.
