The MetroNow Coalition—comprised of the Coalition for Smarter Growth, Federal City Council, Greater Washington Board of Trade, Greater Washington Partnership, Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce, Prince George’s Chamber of Commerce, the 2030 Group, and Tysons Partnership—today released the MetroNow Bus Transformation Project Progress Report, which inventories and analyzes two years of progress by WMATA and the DC region’s nine bus providers against the 2019 Washington Area Bus Transformation Project (BTP) Strategy and Action Plan.
A key finding of the report is that while progress has been made, most of the Bus Transformation Project’s recommendations are off schedule or have seen limited attention over the past two years – understandable given the impact of the pandemic on transit operations. The progress report is a call to action for our region’s leaders to put the Bus Transformation Project back on schedule, and to serve as a tool for readers to hold elected officials and transportation leaders accountable.
