Re: Cleveland Park Metro to Close in 2022? Give Feedback to WMATA
Thanks all - can’t believe this. Time to mobilize - horrible impact on so many especially since this is a preferred entrance and exit for ADA affected - big hit for the commercial district too.
Have to weigh in with entire delegation, Federal appropriators - so many of their staff rely on the metro - as well as USG time to rally.

Thanks! Doesn’t the newly passed $1.9 trillion stimulus plan have any additional funding for WMATA? I read there was a significant block of funds set aside to help struggling transit systems. The December funding helped WMATA move the proposed stark cuts back from July 2021 to January 2022.

The Cleveland Park Metro Station is on the chopping block (along with 21 other stations) and will close effective Jan. 1, 2022 if additional funding is not secured. To provide feedback about this to WMATA, please take the survey at https://metro2022budget2.questionpro.com/
