Getting to the Pike District from Grosvenor Metro Station and Area Developments:

Thousands of people live in The Grosvenor Campus and more development is scheduled for this year.
There is a tunnel leading from 5 hi-rises and 2 garden style and townhouse units.
From this tunnel there is a short escalator leading to Metro station. It is ideal, except when escalator is not running. It is most inconvenient, after walking up a steep incline to the tunnel.

I and others take our carts and head for the Farmers Market on Saturday morning and often find the up escalator is not running. It is not out of order.It is difficult navigating a stopped escalator, especially when the cart is full.

Could White Flint Partnership find out why this escalator is often not operating?

Many years ago, there was a shuttle from White Flint Station to The Mall and to Rock Spring office buildings. This free shuttle was available for 13 years.

For a short time, the shuttle came to Grosvenor Metro Station. The area has grown more since then and is still growing.

I suggest that White Flint Partnership and Metro work together to make the Pike District indeed walk-able for everyone in the nearby areas.
