Metro Mondays: COVID-19 Impacts on Metro Budget and Affects to the Silver Line Openings
Join the Dulles Chamber and the Tysons Partnership TMA for an update on the state of Metro funding and how it will affect the Silver Line in both 2021 and 2022. The status of Silver Line Phase 2 and general Metrorail service is in flux. Metro received nearly $500M in federal funding in late December which will help operations through 2021 but what happens in future years? With a renewed focus on rail, the Biden administration is offering potential for new investments in transit. What could that mean for the Silver Line and Metro?
We’ll hear from Loudoun and Fairfax representatives to the Metro Board, which decides Metrorail budget and service. Join us and listen to updates on what this means for Silver Line stations both today, throughout 2021 and into 2022, and the role the business community can play in ensuring Silver Line success.
