This research, part of a large effort, examines the evolution of the Washington, D.C., area subway system (Metro) from early legislation in the 1950's through adoption late in 1969. The specific purpose of the narrative is to provide a common framework of understanding for the larger effort and to present the incremental nature of the decision-making process relevant to the system's planning. The entire effort, titled transportation planning and politics in the national capital, will examine the policy implications of the values of the various participants in the metro planning process. The perspective will be that of an inner-city resident and his service needs to work, shopping, medical services, etc.
