    Regarding funding for capital projects, is WMATA exploring new ideas? In Los Angeles, for instance, they’ve implemented a 1 cent sales tax increase to pay for transit expansion. How does WMATA go about proposing new funding mechanisms for expansion?

    What can be done to improve station managers competency. Every day I find some problem with the operation of metro stations somewhere along my commute. Either procedures for running the station are not in place or they are ignored.

    With so many core stations well beyond capacity and escalators always on the mend or breaking down why cannot additional stairwells be added to expand capacity between the mezzanine and the platform?

    From the online chat:

    We are certainly aware of how other regions are paying for transit expansions and working closely with our funding partners to explore all options. We are encouraged by recent transportation funding actions taken in Virginia and Maryland as well as an indication of funding support from the District.
