About the Platform Improvement Project

Metro’s Platform Improvement Project is making platforms safer and more accessible for all customers. As part of this multi-year project, Metro identified platforms at 20 outdoor Metrorail stations to rehabilitate. Since its launch in 2019, 17 station platforms have been rehabilitated. Key customer experience improvements are also installed during construction, including: 
  • New slip-resistant tiles
  • Brighter, energy-efficient LED lighting
  • Larger digital information display screens 
  • New stainless-steel platform shelters with charging ports
