Providing Green Jobs
Metrorail and Metrobus provide a critical connection to economic opportunity for those living throughout the region, connecting residents to education, employment, and commercial hubs.
Metro is one of the region's largest employers in the "green" economy and directly supports the region's growth. Each of Metro's more than 12,000 employees have a green job, whether operating vehicles, performing administrative duties, supporting IT, supplying products and equipment, or constructing stations.
We also prioritize work with local businesses when possible, directly spurring economic growth in the region. Learn more about WMATA's small business programs.
