The Metro Riders' Advisory Council is hosting a "listening session" in Alexandria this week and all members of the public are welcome.
It is the first of three two-hour sessions in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC designed to provide riders with an opportunity to have an open dialogue with Metro advisory council members and share feedback about Metro service, according to a Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, or WMATA, news release.
The first session is scheduled for Wednesday, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Charles Houston Recreation Center in Old Town Alexandria.
The 21-member council advises the agency's board of directors on issues affecting Metrobus, Metrorail and Metro Access service. Barbara Hermanson represents the City of Alexandria on the council. She is also the vice chair of the Virginia contingent, which includes two members from Arlington and three from Fairfax counties.
There are six representatives from the District of Columbia and six from Maryland.
