Metro to implement five station name changes Sept. 11
Beginning Sept. 11, Metro will implement five station name changes on signage and maps across the system as requested by local jurisdictions and approved by the Metro Board of Directors. Customers will see immediate changes on digital maps throughout rail stations and on bus displays as well as on wmata.com, Trip Planner, and Next Arrivals. Destination signs on Metrobuses and announcements also will recognize new station names. Static maps will be gradually updated once new Silver Line stations and Potomac Yard Station open for passenger service.
Five Station Name Changes:
- White Flint will become North Bethesda
- Largo Town Center will become Downtown Largo
- Tysons Corner will become Tysons
- Prince George’s Plaza will become Hyattsville Crossing
- West Falls Church secondary name VT/UVA will become VT only.
Physical station signage at White Flint and Largo Town Center has already undergone some changes to complete the process which requires fabrication and installation. Additionally, Metro is working with each jurisdictional partner to coordinate name change rollouts to minimize confusion for customers.
