Public safety was on the minds of those gathered, who all expressed concern over the recent rash of fights -- particularly among teens -- on Metro trains.
D.C. Police talked about how they try to break up large groups of teens as they attempt to board a single train car. That was something that caught the ear of Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker.
"If you're doing that in the District as they're getting on the train, maybe in Prince George's County we do it as they're going out," he says.
January's snowstorm was also fresh in everyone's mind, as was the massive traffic back ups that followed.
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray says part of the problem was "...buses that got mired in the snow, and blocked up lanes. Then you had people who were abandoning cars. They got frustrated and left."
Gray feels Metro needs to explain what it will do with its buses during future snowstorms.
