Parking Around D.C. Rail Stations Strained

Shuttles, walkways, seating redesign are among some of the solutions being considered to address the parking supply shortage in Washington D.C.

"Commuter railroads as well as the region's main transit system, Metro, are running out of room. Robust ridership means packed parking lots, stuffed trains and platforms that can't accommodate another commuter. Solutions in the form of new parking garages and lots, additional trains and expanded platforms cost millions and take years to implement."
