Many years of community planning have produced a vision for Potomac Yard, and a new Metrorail station along the Yellow and Blue lines is central to that vision. The Federal Transit Administration and the National Park Service issued their Records of Decision for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station in the fall of 2016. This marked the last step in the review process under the National Environmental Policy Act. Following the FTA and NPS Records of Decision, WMATA issued its Solicitation Notice and Request for Proposal (RFP) for the design-build contract.  The project is currently in the WMATA procurement phase.

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.
