The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has installed new faregates at the Potomac Avenue and Federal Center SW stations in Washington, D.C., the first two Metrorail stations to be addressed in a systemwide faregate replacement project.
The new faregates allow for quicker and easier access to the Metrorail system, and feature larger displays and enhanced safety features, WMATA officials said in a news release.
Work is also underway to replace faregates at 13 additional stations, with the new faregates phased in as they're completed and ready for service.
