Provide feedback about proposed parking changes and peak rail fares during regional events
In an effort to recover costs and respond to market trends, Metro is proposing the following changes:
- Parking changes. Proposal package includes adjustments to parking fees, operating hours and technology. This includes adjusting hours when parking fees are paid to align with Metrorail hours of operation; charging weekday parking fees on Saturdays, Sundays, federal holidays and/or on days with large regional events; new payment options such as mobile apps or online reservation systems; and multi-day parking fees. Read more about these proposals here.
- Peak rail fares during large-scale regional events. Proposal includes charging peak rail fares on days when peak service and additional operational support are needed to support large-scale regional events, like Independence Day or Inauguration. Read more about this proposal here.
Let us know what you think about these proposals by Monday, October 29, 2018 at 9:00 a.m.
