Metro Town Hall Meetings

May 3, 2011

May 3, 2011 -- We are tuning in to you to help us make important decisions about Metro’s future.

For the first time ever, Metro will host combined Open Houses and Town Hall Meetings prior to its official Public Hearings. Metro staff members will be available at Open Houses for one-on-one conversations about Metro service and programs. Town Hall Meetings will give you an opportunity to talk about the future of the system with Metro leaders, including members of the Metro Board of Directors. During the Public Hearings, Metro will take formal testimony on the following options under consideration for the FY12 budget:

  • Increasing the Metrorail train wait times on weekends
  • Eliminating the Metrobus E6, K1 and N8 lines
  • Restructuring the Metrobus M4, V7, V8, 70 and 71 lines
  • Eliminating the 50¢ discount on certain Anacostia bus routes, resulting in MetroAccess fare increase, and modification of the Anacostia station bus transfer discount program

The Open Houses will be from 5:30-6:00 p.m. followed by the Town Hall Meetings/Q&A from 6:00-6:45 p.m. The Public Hearings will start at 6:45 p.m. The meeting in Arlington will be held on Wednesday, May 18:
