For a while there, the spirit of the Wild West returned to our nation’s capital in the guise of the stagecoach. In its day, the stagecoach epitomized the Wild West. It traveled difficult and dangerous routes transporting drivers and passengers, many of whom were worried sick about whether they would make it home to their families. At times, the threat was so great that stagecoach owners avoided stops where safety was jeopardized. This week, the District’s stagecoach went down that path.On Monday, Metro announced that buses would avoid nighttime stops for one week in the 2400 block of Elvans Road SE because someone had fired at the W8 bus the previous Friday night, striking a passenger. Last month, a Metro bus driver was threatened at Savannah and 19th streets SE. Andre Nickens, who was waiting at the bus stop in the Elvans Road cul-de-sac, told WUSA (Channel 9) that “it’s the danger zone right here. This whole neighborhood is dangerous.” On Sunday and Monday, WUSA reported, the W8 bus did not travel down the dead-end street after 7 p.m.
