Thank you for supporting the Blue Line! To ensure Metro hears our concerns, we are organizing a group to attend the WMATA Riders Advisory Council meeting on Wed. Aug 6 at 6:30 PM. The council’s purpose is to bring concerns of riders to the WMATA Board, and their meeting has a public comment period where we can share the concerns of Blue Line riders (without disrupting the meeting). If we can get a strong turnout of Blue Line riders, it may help convince them that this is a concern that they have to address.
The meeting is at 6:30 PM on Wed, Aug. 6 in the lobby level Meeting Room at Metro's Headquarters at 600 5th Street, NW (near the Gallery Place Metro station).
If you can attend, please let us know (e-mail SaveTheBlueLine@gmail.com) so we know how about how many people to expect. We’d also love to meet other Blue Line supporters before or after the meeting.
If you cannot attend, you can still help us make the meeting a success by sending us pictures of your crowded trains and platforms with location and dates (at SaveTheBlueLine@gmail.com) so we can include them in a pamphlet we are making for the committee members.
Finally, the more signatures that the petition has when we go to the meeting, the more likely they will be to address our concerns. So please help to spread the word about the petition to your friends, family, and co-workers over the next few days.
