I want Momentum.  The next generation of Metro.


The WMATA Board has unanimously approved the Momentum plan, and we want you involved. Show your support for building the next generation of Metro by endorsing the plan today.

By endorsing the plan, you're putting your voice behind Metro's efforts to keep safety as its highest priority and accomplish the following by 2025:

    • Operate all eight-car trains (longest possible) during rush hour by acquiring additional railcars, power capacity, and railcar storage.
    • Expand or enhance high-volume rail transfer stations in the Metro system core to ease congestion for existing customers and to accommodate more riders in the future. Build new underground pedestrian connections between select stations such as the Farragut Stations or Metro Center/Gallery Place.
    • Enhance and make bus service faster by completing the PCN, which outlines a variety of improvements that allow buses to bypass traffic congestion.
    • Seek to restore peak period Blue Line service between Pentagon and Rosslyn stations through the construction of underground tracks.
    • Become a one-stop shop for all regional transit trip planning, and payment for the region's 15 transit systems. Upgrade communications systems for better, more accurate, and audible information for riders.
    • Expand bus fleet and storage/maintenance facilities along growing corridors.
    • Build new rail infrastructure, such as pocket tracks and crossovers, to improve service for customers and provide more flexibility in the system.

We're asking for your name and hometown, along with an optional email address if you wish to receive future information about Momentum. But don't worry, we'll only show your first name, last initial and hometown!

Thanks for showing support in how we'll shape the future of transportation in the DC, Virginia, Maryland region!
