This report includes the major findings of a study carried out in late winter and early spring of 1975 to assess public attitudes in the Washington area toward the Metrorail system in various stages of its construction in different parts of the community. The study used standard survey research techniques in which samples of the population were interviewed about their transportation habits, their priorities for improvements in local transportation, their views about Metrorail and aspects of its operation, their own prediction about the likelihood of their using the system and their opinions about methods of financing Metro's construction. The interviewing was carried out by the field staff of The Washington Survey, the local research facility of BSSR.
