On behalf of the Greater Washington Board of Trade Chair, Terry McCallister and Chair-Elect, Kim Horn, we are sending you a letter co-signed by numerous business organizations. This letter was sent earlier today to the signatories of the governing compact for WMATA asking them to take bold action to reform our regional Metro system.   In this letter, we outline guiding principles that would set the framework for much needed changes in Metro’s governance, operations and funding.

To facilitate a surround sound regarding the urgency and the path forward, last evening the Board of Trade along with the Federal City Council and the 2030 Group conducted a joint briefing with Bob McCartney from the Washington Post.
