WMATA Selects Bethesda Metro Station as Test for "Model Station" Concept
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) announced today that the Bethesda Metro Station has been selected to test potential future station concepts. As part of Metro’s strategic plan, Momentum, the model station will enable Metro to test several design concepts in a single station, with improved lighting, better information and improved customer convenience.
“I want to extend my sincere appreciation to Metro for selecting Bethesda as the pilot for its station environment improvement program,” said Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett. “Bethesda has the one of the highest daily riderships of any Metro station in MontgomeryCounty along the oldest Metro line, and it is showing its age. As the gateway to Bethesda, one of the most important economic engines for the state of Maryland, this project will ensure that this critical Metro station continues to function well and present a favorable and attractive experience for all riders.”
