Metro spending hearing planned

Metro has scheduled a public hearing June 2 on its proposed capital budget and other investments for the next fiscal year, both of which will devote money to safety and reliability improvements.

The public is invited to speak on projects included in the proposed $709 million Capital Improvement Program. Among the planned investments are new rail cars to replace the aging 1000-series cars, replacing and rehabilitating old buses and bus garages and rehabilitating several stations on the Red and Blue/Yellow and Orange lines.

The hearing is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. at Metro headquarters in the lobby-level board room at 600 Fifth St. NW.
