ULI Washington recently joined the MetroNow coalition, a regional effort to put Metro on a safe, smart, and sustainable path in 2018. This is a first-of-its-kind branded regional collaboration effort that is combining the collective voices and assets of the regional business community to drive action. The unprecedented level of regional collaboration behind the MetroNow coalition indicates how important a priority Metro is to the Greater Washington business community and how willing it is to work with others in a diverse coalition to create the environment that is needed for businesses to be created, grow, and thrive here.
We are excited to join this collaborative effort and hope ULI members will add your voices to the conversation by signing the MetroNow action petition at MetroNow.comand following the coalition via its digital channels: @MetroNow and facebook.com/MetroNowDMV.
Together we can bring about required changes in Metro governance, funding and operations to put the transit system on track to ensure the DC region has the world-class transportation system it needs to support and drive future growth.
