Greater Washington requires a world-class transportation system to remain competitive in a global economy.
Metro was once one of the region’s greatest assets, but today it is a growing liability. We can change that. Effective governance and dedicated, sustainable funding are needed in order to reverse this trend, improve operations, and restore Metro to the world-class system it was intended to be.
In April, regional leaders came together for the Third Annual Roadmap for Greater Washington's Economic Future.
For the third time, leaders from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia gathered together to review progress since the last Roadmap and to set the course for next year. We celebrated historic progress on Metro, discussed the potential impact of Amazon HQ2 coming to Washington, and learned more about the economic status of Greater Washington.
Rebranding Greater Washington
Greater Washington is primarily perceived to be a place of gridlock, partisanship and political dysfunction—and as of late a swamp that needs to be drained.
Our charge is to create a regional brand that transforms the image of the Washington metro area into one that is less government-centric and positions the region based on its positive attributes.
