Statement from Deputy Mayor Lucinda Babers on Metro’s New Budget Proposal

Monday, November 4, 2019

(Washington, DC) – Today, Deputy Mayor for Operations and Infrastructure Lucinda Babers released the following statement regarding the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s Fiscal Year 2021 budget proposal.

“We are all hopeful that Metro will continue to progress on safety, reliability, and capacity. By partially returning late-night rail service in the new budget proposal, Metro is acknowledging that our system must stay open as late as our region does. Riders and taxpayers deserve transparency and accountability, and so we will review the new budget proposal and demand Metro is clear on how it will meet all of its obligations to the region.”
