The Washington, DC region is great >> and it can be greater.


Just two days left to redesign the Metro map

The contest to design a new Metro map is almost over. Is your map done?

Since the end of the month falls in the middle of the weekend, we'll give you an extra day to finish the maps. They're due at 11:59:59 pm on Sunday night.

We'll be picking winners two ways. You'll all be able to vote for your favorite map (using IRV), and we're also putting together a jury of experts to review the maps.

David Alpert is the founder of Greater Greater Washington and its board president. He worked as a Product Manager for Google for six years and has lived in the Boston, San Francisco, and New York metro areas in addition to Washington, DC. He now lives with his wife and two children in Dupont Circle. 


I really dig that the wikipedia map makes it appear that the silver line will keep running slightly past McPherson Square towards Shaw
