Environmental Impact

Environmental Impact

As the leading transit agency in the Washington Metropolitan region, Metro represents the greatest opportunity for the region to reduce its transportation-related carbon footprint. Every trip taken with Metro instead of a car reduces the region's carbon footprint. To achieve further reductions, we are looking inward to increase efficiency, reduce energy and resource consumption, and continue to align with regional sustainability efforts and innovation.
