D.C.-Metro Region Wins $60 Million Public Transportation Award, F.C.’s Snyder Reports

At today’s regional Northern Virginia Transportation Planning Board meeting, chaired by Falls Church Councilman David Snyder, it was announced that the Washington Metro Region won a national competition and has been awarded nearly $60 million to improve public transportation throughout the region, including in Falls Church. Qualifying for the award “represents one of the most significant project planning efforts undertaken by the Washington Metro Region since the building of Metrorail,” Snyder, who was involved in the project, said.

“This is a real win for regionalism and again shows what we can achieve when we work together. Falls Church will enjoy better regionally connected bus service.The project also begins to lay the foundation for a regional light rail system that would, in turn, also benefit Falls Church families and businesses.”
