    Also, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments received a grant this week to place priority bus service on Route One. This funding will support priority bus lanes, queue jump lanes and priority signalization at some intersections, and better bus amenities, including real-time NextBus displays at the bus stops. The COG grant proposal also included bike-sharing for the Metropolitan Washington region, including College Park, but unfortunately COG did not receive funding for that program.
