Ride Metro Rail or Bus? Attend a Public Hearing Thursday

Everyone has their own personal Metro gripe; Twitter is full of #wmatafail; and it is no secret the rail and bus system is in need of cash. But are the proposed service changes really fair? Metro is currently holding a series of public hearings on its proposed fare, route, and hour changes. The next one will be in Columbia Heights on Thursday, April 1 at 6:30 pm at the All Souls Unitarian Church (1500 Harvard St. NW).

A number of the changes Metro is considering greatly affects Columbia Heights, including a proposal to eliminate Yellow Line service to Fort Totten. Ward One Councilman Jim Graham has made it clear he is against the Yellow Line cut. And the MidCity Business Association has started an advocacy campaign to keep public transportation options available to locals and neighborhood visitors, alike. Visit midcitylife to sign the petition.

What are your ideas to fix Metro?
