Station names updated for new map
In preparation for service changes next year, the Metro Board today approved several recommendations for station name modifications.
In accordance with Board-adopted guidelines limiting primary station names to 19 characters (13 characters for transfer stations), the Board approved the following for the June 2012 map:
In addition, the Board exempted three station names from the primary/secondary application that exceed the 19-character limit because customers have strong familiarity with the existing names: Grosvenor-Strathmore, Georgia Ave-Petworth and Franconia-Springfield. Also, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport remains unchanged.
The new map will include primary and secondary names for stations exceeding the 19-character limit, including:
Navy Mem’l-Penn Quarter
Mt Vernon Sq
7th Street-Convention Center
African Amer Civil War Memorial/Cardozo
West Falls Church
