I think this map is a great point of data for the prioritization of the extension of the metro system.

Based on the business in Vienna, the Orange line desperately needs extension. Now, it's getting that more or less with the Silver Line.

Next is the Shady Grove side of the Red line.

And more or less equal are Franconia-Springfield, Huntington and New Carrolton. For those first two, things are moving (way too slow). I am not aware of a push for extension of the Orange line in MD, although the Purple line could alleviate some of the problems there.

The downtown numbers are more than sufficient motivation to expand the system downtown as well.

Does anybody know what the maximum number of people is that a station can handle (per hour)? And how close we are to that number at these busy stations?
