Proposed Grosvenor Metro Closure Met with Strong Opposition

As a result of a sharp decline of Metrorail ridership over the past 11 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, unless they receive more federal funding, Metro will need to make service cuts, including 22 station closures. Metro is dealing with a budget deficit of about $210 million, with rail ridership down 90% due to the pandemic.

Are use the Metro yesterday for the first time in a year because of Covid. Now that I’ve had my two shots I feel more comfortable in taking the metro. Because not as many people are using the metro at this time why not limit the number of cars rather than the number of stops. Because the vaccine is becoming more readily available, it seems that it’s premature to decide to close the metro stop the beginning of January.
