Potomac Yard Metrorail Station Planning

An infill Metrorail station is being planned for the Potomac Yard development along the yellow and blue lines. The project is currently completing the environmental review process and beginning development of conceptual design. A working group has been established to coordinate with City staff on the project. Learn more about the process and view images of the documents provided to date.

Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group (PYMIG)
The Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group or PYMIG, was established to ensure a thorough technical analysis of a potential new Metrorail station and ensure full coordination with other City efforts. PYMIG meets regularly to consider the variety of issues that will arise as the project moves into design and construction, and to function as a forum for the public outreach process through station opening.
Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS)

In May 2015, the public comment period for the Potomac Yard Metro Station DEIS closed after having been open since April 3, 2015, when the document was published in the federal register. The City has since scheduled many opportunities for stakeholders to learn more about the DEIS and the benefits, history, purpose, and financial feasibility of the new station. Comments on the DEIS will be addressed in the Final EIS.

Crystal City-Potomac Yard Transitway Project
The new Metroway premium transit service has begun with a strong start, raising weekday ridership to nearly 1,500 per day. This exceeds ridership of the 9S bus (the Crystal City/Potomac Yard shuttle, which was replaced by Metroway) by 50% and builds on unchanged 9A bus ridership (which also operates through the four Alexandria Metroway stations). In the ultimate configuration of the transitway, buses will operate between Pentagon City Metrorail and Braddock Road Metrorail stations in both exclusive and mixed-use lanes through Arlington County and the City of Alexandria.
