50 years ago, visionary leaders in our region conceived, planned, and built Metro. Now, as Metro reaches capacity in many places, what's the plan for the next generation of transit in our region?
Yesterday, the Coalition for Smarter Growth released Thinking Big Planning Smart, a new report to engage residents and policymakers across the region in a campaign to win a new transit vision and the funding to make it a reality.

The report offers the first compilation of the region's many transit and transportation plans, catalogs the many benefits of transit to the D.C. region, and compares metrics for six major projects in significant planning or construction phases, including the Silver Line, Purple Line, D.C. Streetcar, Arlington Streetcar, Alexandria Bus Rapid Transit, and Montgomery Rapid Transit System.

This report is a baseline and we hope a launching point for regional dialogue and collaboration to create a plan for a next generation of transit network for our region. We're pushing for an official process that brings together elected officials, transit planners, and top national consultants, and fully engages the community.
