Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Metro launched the Blue/Orange/Silver Capacity & Reliability Study (BOS Study) in 2019 to identify the best and most cost-effective solutions to address future ridership, service, and reliability needs on these Metrorail lines. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the two-year study has been extended and final recommendations are now expected in late 2021.

Metro is currently conducting a cost/benefit analysis on the top concepts identified through a series of open houses and an online survey that gathered feedback on the project concepts, your ideas and the improvements most important to you. 

Here is how you ranked your priorities:
