I just spoke to people from FMF and it turns out that buses are NOT allowed to
park at metro stops.  Metro transit has announced that buses cannot park in
their lots.  So, if the bus driver has a hotel room and he is just dropping the
group off at the metro then parking at his hotel that is fine. However if he
intends on leaving the bus in the Metro parking lot that won't work! Instead,
buses that have registered with the March are all going to be parking in RFK
stadium. This area has been secured by the March office for the buses and will
be protected with security personnel all day long.

We need to figure this out so we can register the buses if needed.  If anyone is
arranging the bus drop off/pick up and wants to talk to me, please call me at
