Capital Program Documents

Metro's capital program includes a 10-year Capital Plan, a six-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and an annual Capital Budget. Collectively, these form the framework for the development, evaluation, strategic alignment and delivery of capital investments.

Capital Improvement Program Progress Reports

The Capital Funding Agreement and each of the Dedicated Funding agreements require Metro to report quarterly on progress in use of funding for capital investments. This Capital Improvement Progress report provides information consistent with the requirements of those agreements.






Capital Needs Forecast

The ten-year Capital Needs Forecast provides information about the scale and scope of Metro's unconstrained state of good repair and modernization needs and insight to support the capital planning, prioritization and programming process.

Jurisdictional Agreements

Capital Funding Agreement

Since 2010, Metro's jurisdictional partners have affirmed their commitment to Metro's safety and state of good repair goals with the execution of a Capital Funding Agreement (CFA). The CFA provides the vehicle for jurisdictional matches to federal formula and discretionary grants and system performance funds - contributions over and above what is required to match federal grants. The District of Columbia; State of Maryland; Arlington County, VA;  Fairfax County, VA; County of Loudoun; and cities of Alexandria, VA; Fairfax, VA; and Falls Church, VA are signatories to the CFA. In addition, DC has also executed a Local Capital Funding Agreement (LCFA) with Metro.



Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act Agreement

The federal funding that Metro receives annually under PRIIA requires a fifty percent local match that is allocated equally among the District of Columbia, State of Maryland, and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Metro has entered into an agreement with the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) for the funding of Virginia’s share of the PRIIA local match.

Dedicated Funding Agreements

In 2018, the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia approved a combined $500 million in annual new dedicated capital funding for Metro to restore its assets to a state of good repair and improve the safety and reliability of the Metro system. Subsequently, Metro negotiated and executed individual Dedicated Funding (DF) agreements with Virginia (May 1, 2019), Maryland (September 26, 2019), and the District of Columbia (October 22, 2020).
