Northern Virginia Metro Ridership Declines — A smaller number of people are taking trains and buses across Northern Virginia. Metrorail ridership in the area was down nearly 6.7 percent in June, according to recent reports. Despite the decline in people taking public transit, three Silver Line stations — Greensboro, Tysons Corner and McLean — saw an increase in riders. But not every Silver Line station fared well: Spring Hill and Wiehle-Reston East stations both experienced ridership declines of nearly 6 percent. [WTOP]
