Back in April, Metro announced that it had chosen its Bethesda station to test new designs as a “model station of the future.” Today, Metro marks the completion of a big round of that process. So, Metro riders, here is what could soon come to a station near you:
- A brighter mezzanine
- An additional stairway between the mezzanine and platform to reduce congestion
- Brighter, more energy-efficient light strips suspended from the ceiling over the mezzanine
- $700,000 in construction costs, which Metro says was under budget
Here are two more views of the futuristic Bethesda station:
