Metro wants to know what to call eight new stations on the proposed Silver Line, which will extend the Metrorail out to Dulles. Floris? Innovation? Herndon? Metro station names have occupied plenty of WMATA time in the past, and we'll see plenty more discussion in the future. "Metro and Fairfax County would like your opinion on proposed names for the eight Silver Line stations in Fairfax County," a new survey begins. WMATA will maintain the survey until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21 and says it wants evocative station names under 19 characters long.
Share your thoughts over at the official WMATA survey.
Just don't let the Virginia stakeholders add too many suffixes to the name. We've already seen a vision of what happens to the Metro map when marketing runs amuck.
