Initiative 2: Core Station Improvements
This program provides improvements and expansion at high ridership stations to ensure safe and efficient operations and facilitate passenger movements from street to platform and transfers between lines.
Initiative 6: Bus Fleet Expansion
In order to meet the challenge of growth in demand for bus service and improve service effectiveness and reliability, Metro requires 400 new buses by 2025 in addition to those needed for service on the Priority Corridor Network.
Initiative 7: Pocket Tracks
The addition of special trackwork at key locations in the system will provide more flexibility to the overall system.
The Return On Investment
The seven projects in Metro 2025 will reduce road congestion, save money throughout the region, add riders to the Metro system, and make Metro rides more comfortable and efficient.
Mary Hynes - Board Member with Arlington County and WMATA Board of Directors Member - was recently featured by Comcast Newsmakers, discussing sustainability efforts as well as Metro's strategic plan, Momentum.
Ms. Hynes describes Metro's "Big Ideas" for 2025, including: the need for "all 8-car trains" during rush hour; additional crossovers and pocket tracks to provide more flexibility during peak period operations, emergencies and trackwork; and priority for Metrobus on city streets and highways.
