People submitted over 1,300 ideas to improve the rider experience on Metrorail, Metrobus, or MetroAccess. Greater Greater Washington and WMATA narrowed them down to 76 eligible semifinalists; the jury then chose 10 finalists and the 12 honorable mentions below.
These are ideas which the jury really liked, but for one reason or another could not be implemented safely, successfully, in six months or less, and for no more than $100,000. Some are ideas which Metro staff really liked and could work on in the future, and we hope they will, but would take more time or money. Others are actually being done already.
We will be following up with more detailed information on the reasons each of these could not be finalists, here and in posts on Greater Greater Washington. Thanks to all who entered!
