The Examiner is reporting that Metro is looking at a virtual tunnel between the Farragut stations. Unlike London and New York, these won’t be underground tunnels connecting the stations. In fact, no major construction will be required for this tunnel. The technology operation would allow patrons to move between the two Farragut Stations (West and North), in effect creating a transfer at Farragut Square. The tunnel itself would be leaving the station and walking a block to the other one, but it could help alleviate congestion at Metro Center and reduce some commute times.

John has lived in DC since attending CUA’s Architecture school starting in 1995. He is a UI/UX/Design guru for LivingSocial and also plays in numerous bands (Juniper Lane, Rotoscope, Boboroshi & Kynz) and loves hyping people on eating local food, sustainable human settlement patterns, gardening, and good old fashioned rock and roll and electronica. He runs the dirt lab (aka mega garden) for WeLoveDC, where he eats most of the proceeds.

  1. Curious; I’ve done that ‘transfer’ before when I was in Courthouse and the Orange Line would be mucked up, to get to Red. I never thought it was a time-saver unless there were delays – has anyone paid the extra fare and felt it was worth it?
