Transit Planning in Washington, D.C. Past, Present, and Future 720541

Existing transit services in the Washington, D.C. area are faced with increasing costs and diminishing patronage, resulting in declining service. Top priority tasks are to provide for the improvement of existing bus services, planning for integrated and efficient bus operation before, during and after construction of the rail rapid transit system; and initiation of new and expanded passenger and service improvements.
Future transit planning must recognize, however, that land use and travel patterns dictate the choice of travel mode. In fact, highway improvements will also be required in order to serve the land development and travel generated by the transit lines themselves.
