Come Talk Metro Issues and Solutions on Thursday

Metro SIlver Line Map/Credit: MetroThe Northern Virginia Transportation Commission is hosting a forum in Reston on Thursday to hear from the public the concerns and solutions “about WMATA and help identify solutions to get Metro back on track. ”

Metro’s Silver Line opened in Reston in summer 2014. It will be the terminus of Phase 1 of the rail line until 2020, when Phase 2 stations, including one at Reston Town Center, open.

But Metro has been plagued by problems lately. This year began with a woman dying in a smoke-filled Metro car near L’Enfant Plaza. There are offloads and delays daily. And Wiehle-Reston East has been criticized for poor garage and kiss-and-ride design.

Thursday’s meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. at Reston Station’s building on the plaza. 11389 Reston Station Blvd.

It will be a workshop-style format, and the forums will begin with a presentation by the Virginia members of the WMATA Board of Directors and senior WMATA staff, including new Metro General Manager/CEO Paul Wiedefeld, will share results from recent efforts to engage customers and provide updates on improvements and investments as well as continuing challenges.

Participants will break into roundtables, where they will prioritize issues and identify solutions aimed at helping WMATA earn rider loyalty.
