Metro CEO Releases Statement about Federal Appropriations

Metro General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Paul Wiedefeld today issued the following statement today about federal appropriations:

“We are very grateful for the inclusion of Metro’s $150 million in the Omnibus Appropriations Act, which provides the critical funding necessary to ensure our safety projects New Metro Cars 7000 Seriescontinue without interruption.

“In addition, we deeply appreciate that our riders will get a better commuter benefit thanks to language in the tax legislation that would set the transit benefit at the same level as those who drive and park.

“On behalf of all Metro riders, I want to express thanks to our Congressional delegation for their hard work to help us improve Metro, and I encourage swift passage.”
