9th Grade D.C. Trip

Ninth graders from the Rensselaer City School District should be arriving in Washington, D.C. by now. Their Inauguration 2009 bus trip was set to depart at 1am this morning, and they planned to connect to the D.C. Metro north of the city, and make a visit to the Smithsonian before the ceremony.

I suspect the transportation logistics will be a bit more challenging than anticipated. Here is the Washington Area Metropolitan Transit Authority web site, with a page just for Inauguration (17 straight hours of rush hour service). Check out their Inauguration Day Ridership chart, updated hourly.
