If you visit Haynes Point or the JEWEL PARK of our city, you will see busses occupying parking spaces reseved for "CARS" and most annoying running idle in the heat of summer. One can hardly sit on a bench or the lawn due to the noise, exaust smell or walk by these busses as they produce heat. The driver sleeping inside with air condition. This is a failure on the part of national park authority.

How about a parking lot? For buses.

And the rest of us. Now that the ellipse is not available.

Stupid people coming the DC to see what? A bunch of buildings. Some vacation. Do yourself a favor idiots, and go to the beach instead.

They should not be allowed to idle! Tour buses aren't the only problem, commuter buses clog up the streets too.

Tour buses aren't just a problem for drivers. They'll stop in front of Metrobus stops, idling and blocking transit users from boarding--or making it so that the Metrobuses themselves can't stop in the proper spot.
