College Park – UMD Metro Station

Recently Metro has released its FY 2022 budget, which you can find here on Metro’s website.

According to the proposed budget, Metro is proposing to close the College Park – UMD station. Additionally, it’s planning to eliminate bus route 86, which serves College Park and the Route 1 corridor, and modifying bus route 83 to terminate at Greenbelt Metro station.

Other proposed changes to the Metrorail system are 30-minute service frequencies between trains, currently 12 minutes, and a decrease in parking fees from $5.20 to $4.95 in Prince George’s County.

Metro will be hosting a Public Hearing on the proposed changes on March 8, 2021, at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., March 9, 2021, at 6 p.m., and March 10, 2021, at 6 p.m.

The City Council will discuss the WMATA budget at our next week’s Council meeting.
