Metro Riders' Council Chairwoman Introduces Herself

Diana Zinkl of the District, the new chairman of the Metro Riders' Advisory Council, introduced herself at the Metro board meeting this morning. She grew up in Green Bay, Wisc., but is a lifelong transit user, and at 37, has never owned a car. She's been in Washington for six years and works as an analyst at the Government Accountability Office.

She asks the board members to live for one week without a car. That many be difficult for some board members, who as Lena Sun pointed out in The Post last Sunday, can't manage to get to Metro headquarters without their cars.

The riders' council is very concerned about potential cuts to service. She says it would like to have a better understanding of how the transit authority developed its proposals for bus and rail cutbacks.
