The study examines the impact on ridership and revenues of an alternative mid-city alignment of the Greenbelt line of Metro's Adopted Regional System (ARS). The change in alignment involves the substitution of three stations on the proposed alignment under consideration as opposed to two stations on the original route. Two alternatives are studied in the report. First, the realignment of the mid-city portion of the Greenbelt Route from the Gallery Place Station to Columbia Heights is examined; second, this same realignment is considered along with the elimination of the Petworth Station. The report identifies changes that might result in ridership and revenue under each of the alternatives and their impact on WMATA's system-wide projections of ridership and revenue for the year 1990.
