Accountability & Governance Reform
Enact governance reforms to shrink the Board, improve accountability, and enable a sharper focus on the health of the entire system and its long term sustainability.
Sustainable, Dedicated Funding
Maintaining a minimum of $500 million in dedicated and bondable funding, with each local jurisdiction responsible for determining how money is raised, will enable a more stable system.
Prioritize Bus Operations
Bus prioritization on roadways, equitable policies that remove barriers, regional coordination across providers, and regular reports to monitor progress can improve bus performance.
About the Coalition
The MetroNow coalition is made up of regional leaders from the business, non-profit, and advocacy communities. We came together to ensure that action was taken to put Metro — the backbone of greater Washington’s transportation infrastructure — on a safe, smart, and sustainable path forward. We are dedicated to securing comprehensive improvement of Metro’s governance, funding, and operational structures. We are doubling down on our commitment to regional mobility by expanding our focus to the region’s bus system. Buses expand access to jobs and opportunities far beyond the reach of existing Metro stations, connecting communities that are not served by Metrorail. We know our region deserves a better bus system. The time to act is now.
