Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley and District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray issued the following statement today regarding Momentum. Calling it a blueprint for a better Metro system, WMATA's Board of Directors approved the first such transit plan for the National Capital Region in more than a decade.
"We applaud the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Board for the development of its Momentum strategic plan. This initiative continues the governance reform work at WMATA. Momentum provides a framework which will help support the continued economic viability of Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia and across the region. As the regional leaders work to develop an implementation strategy and plan, we encourage WMATA's management to continue its focus on further enhancing productivity and efficiency as it has over the last three years."
