Metro is considering two alternatives that would increase rail service at the Shady Grove, Rockville, Twinbrook and White Flint stations during rush hour and limit the number of trains that turn back at Grosvenor-Strathmore.
The agency is seeking input from riders, via a survey, on how those changes would affect their commute. Feedback from the survey will be provided to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Board of Directors in July. If any adjustments are approved, they will take place in December.
