Turn out for Metro’s budget hearings!

Metro’s annual public budget hearings are coming up! It’s crucial that we all take action to support more funding for Metro. We need you to:

  1. Attend one of the hearings in-person to show your support, OR
  2. If you can’t make it in person, join the virtual hearing; AND
  3. Provide comments by March 5th (priority) and fill out their survey

Metro’s new budget is a huge improvement from their previous doomsday budget, thanks to savings that WMATA identified and some funding from DC, MD, and VA!

But this doesn’t fully close the gap, so there will still be some service cuts, some fare hikes, and delays to capital projects. That’s why we hope you will call for even more funding to Close the Gap!

Public input is CRUCIAL! Make your voice heard by submitting your comments before the deadline on March 5th at 5pm.
