Following Metrorail Repair Plan Announcement, COG Encourages Residents to Visit Commuter Connections for Commuter Info

May 6, 2016

Washington, D.C. - Following today’s Metrorail repair plan (SafeTrack) announcement by General Manager Paul Wiedefeld, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) encourages area commuters to visit Commuter Connections at www.commuterconnections.org for information on transitioning to other travel options while portions of the Metrorail system begin to undergo intensive work. On the Commuter Connections site, commuters will find helpful resources and information on carpooling, vanpooling, commuter rail, bus, telework, bicycling, and walking. Site visitors can also set up a free account, request a ridematch, and make carpooling plans.

“As WMATA works diligently to bring the Metrorail system to a state of good repair under their SafeTrack Plan, Commuter Connections is standing by, ready to assist the region’s commuters in planning for these disruptions to their commutes,” said Nicholas Ramfos, Director of Commuter Connections. “Riders on each Metrorail line will feel the impact, so we’re happy to help you plan ahead, and consider your options.”

Commuter Connections uses the latest advances in technology, including a mobile-friendly website and mobile apps, to give commuters state-of-the-art access to its programs on their smartphones and tablets. Commuter Connections, a leader in promoting transportation benefits and options in the metropolitan Washington region for more than 40 years, makes it fast and efficient for all commuters in the region to find a ride and search for park and ride lots near their home locations.
