  • Rail line has the passenger capacity of about six lanes of rush-hour traffic.
  • Rail would create an additional transportation option for rush hour drivers, 80% of whom are local commuters.
  • Rail would connect people to jobs in Alexandria, National Harbor, and beyond.
  • Rail in place of HOV lanes and ramps would allow smaller interchanges and reduce environmental damage.
  • Rail service can accommodate growing volume by adding more rail cars and more frequent trains.
