    I will most certainly be at the hearing!

    I am more concerned with what WMATA plans to do with the inevitable fare raise than what it will be (fare raises should be expected). Are they going to improve the washington dc infrastructure?

    There needs to be transparency into what the funds will go towards. This is an opportunity for WMATA to listen to what riders want. I’m not buying it if they just say that "increased fare prices will just off set current costs"

    Improve the system for those in washington dc who use it most!
