NoMa Metro Station Fastest Growing in System
The Washington Examiner reported this week that the New York Avenue Metro Station is growing faster than all the other 85 stations in the Metrorail system. The daily ridership has grown 18.6 percent over the last year, and weekday ridership (as of June) averages 7,461 people. The growth is not hard to see for NoMa residents and employees, as construction cranes dot the sky on practically every block. Already, more than 45,000 people work in NoMa each day. The residents are growing rapidly as well, with 2,200 residential units under construction now!
To recognize this growth, WMATA (Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority) will change the name of the New York Avenue Metro Station. Beginning in June 2012, the station will officially be renamed NoMa/Gallaudet U. The New York Avenue designation will remain as a secondary title for 12 months, then will be completely removed. Read more from the Examiner.
