Platform Improvement Project
As part of this multiyear project, we're rebuilding deteriorating platforms at 20 outdoor Metrorail stations to improve safety and accessibility along with other customer experience improvements.
New Buses Each Year
With more than 1,300 buses in the Metrobus fleet, we replace about 100 buses each year to obtain an average fleet age of around 7-8 years. This includes standard 40-foot buses as well as the longer "articulated" buses.
Metro's 748 new 7000-series railcars were built to maximize safety while providing enhanced rider comfort and reliability. The 748th and final railcar entered passenger service in 2020.
