  • Metrorail Station Access Alternatives Study - Final Report
    Publication Date: 7/18/2012
    Publication Number: 20126448

    Metrorail ridership is projected to continue to grow over the next two decades, reaching nearly a million daily rail riders by 2040. A key aspect of accommodating this growth will be simply getting the passengers to the stations and onto the trains. In an atmosphere of competing priorities, state-of-good repair investments will receive the bulk of funding, making the estimated 30,000 spaces required if the current Park & Ride arrival mode of 30% remains constant all the more difficult to fund. In addition, WMATA has a strategic objective in using its station areas for transit-oriented development, rather than for additional parking resources.
