The report includes such highlights of the year's accomplishments as groundbreaking in Maryland and receipt of first Metro rolling stock and 620 new Metrobuses. The year closed with 39 miles of route and 39 stations under construction, including 26 for which finish contracts had been awarded. About 4.6 miles and six stations of Metro service is scheduled to begin in early fall of 1975, with a total of 18 miles and 25 stations in service during the Bicentennial year.
