Metro will be handing out surveys at all 86 stations in an effort include riders in operational decisions

Starting today, Metro is handing out 400,000 survey cards at Metrorail stations to get passengers involved in planning and operations decisions.

The questionnaires will be distributed at all 86 stations during the survey period, which goes through May 25. Passengers will be asked about the trip they are making when they receive the form, so they may get these more than once. Riders can return the surveys in a collection box at the station, or mail them in. The surveys can also be completed online.

As an added benefit, randomly selected respondents will be given SmarTrip cards for participating.
