Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

Metro launched the Blue/Orange/Silver Capacity & Reliability Study (BOS Study), a two-year project, to identify the best and most cost-effective solutions to address future ridership, service, and reliability needs on these Metrorail lines.  

Over the past few months Metro listened to your feedback from open houses and an online survey. We asked you to tell us your thoughts about the proposed project concepts, share your ideas and tell us what improvements are most important to you. 

Here is how you ranked the priorities:
