DC: Community Meeting for Metro Riders

WE NEED A PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM THAT LISTENS TO THOSE WHO DEPEND ON IT THE MOST: the riding public.

WMATA services are a vital economic lifeline for residents of DMV region, especially the most public transit dependent populations of low-income workers, persons with disabilities, senior citizens, and students. Nearly 600,000 people rely on WMATA services daily. 

WMATA is not adequately providing a safe and reliable transit systems and the demand to do so is growing rapidly. By slashing services, eliminating routes, and raising fares, WMATA is leaving public transit-dependent populations stranded without access to employment, food, schools, healthcare and community services. 

WMATA riders and the regional economy are suffering. The lack of good public transportation to access these basic necessities is one of the major economic, environmental and social justice issues facing the DMV region. 

Come and get plugged into the local rider organizing that is happening to Save Our System.
