Metro Is Renaming Five Stations

Metro Is Renaming Five Stations

Metro  has announced that it will implement five station name changes on signage and maps across the system as requested by local jurisdictions and approved by the Metro Board of Directors. The changes will go into effect on September 11th.

According to Metro, riders will see immediate changes on digital maps throughout rail stations and on bus displays as well as on, Trip Planner, and Next Arrivals. Destination signs on Metrobuses and announcements also will recognize new station names. Static maps will be gradually updated once new Silver Line stations and Potomac Yard Station open for passenger service.

Five Station Name Changes:

  • White Flint will become North Bethesda
  • Largo Town Center will become Downtown Largo
  • Tysons Corner will become Tysons
  • Prince George’s Plaza will become Hyattsville Crossing
  • West Falls Church secondary name VT/UVA will become VT only.
