Dashboard Identifies Safest Time to Ride Metro

An online dashboard has been launched to help riders determine the safest times to use Metro and other public transit services.

The dashboard was created Monday by the Greater Washington Partnership in collaboration with consulting firm EY, Metro and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, InsideNoVa reported.

The Greater Washington Partnership is a civic alliance of CEOs representing companies from Baltimore to Richmond.

John Hillegass, associate of transportation policy for the partnership, said “the source of this was all the uncertainty and fear we heard from both employers and employees using public transit during the coronavirus.”

“We wanted to try to close the information gap so people can better understand how our transportation system is operating and make decisions for themselves,” he said InsideNoVa reported.

The dashboard provides details on how many passengers are on a Metro train car and information on other transit operators in the D.C. region such as bus services and their practices requiring face coverings, rear-door boarding and other anti-COVID-19 steps, InsideNoVa reported.
