The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, known as Metro, provides rail, bus and paratransit service to a 1,500-square mile area that includes Washington, DC, and surrounding jurisdictions in Maryland and Virginia. The 106-mile Metrorail system is the second busiest in the United States, with 218 million annual trips, including more than 700,000 trips on a typical weekday. Metrobus is the sixth largest bus system in the nation, providing 132 million annual trips on 318 routes. MetroAccess provides paratransit service for more than 7,000 riders on a typical weekday.

Metro is essential to mobility, business development, regional connectivity and tourism in the Washington, DC, area. The system is midway through a massive six year, $6 billion rebuilding program, called MetroForward, to improve the system’s safety and reliability, and is laying the groundwork for its long-term strategic plan, called Momentum, which will allow the Authority to provide expanded service for future growth in the region.

  • Key Differentiator
    The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) was created by an interstate compact in 1967 to plan, develop, build, finance, and operate a balanced regional transportation system in the national capital area. Metro began building its rail system in 1969, acquired four regional bus systems in 1973, and began operating the first phase of Metrorail in 1976. Today, Metrorail serves 91 stations and has 117 miles of track. Metrobus serves the nation's capital 24 hours a day, seven days a week with 1,500 buses. Metrorail and Metrobus serve a population of approximately 4 million within a 1,500-square mile jurisdiction. Metro began its paratransit service, MetroAccess, in 1994; it provides about 2.3 million trips per year.
