No Brainer, Yupette. Anyone who's concerned about the decline in Metro's ridership should check out what Metro Board member and Arlington County Board member Chris Zimmerman did to Metro ridership over the past 15 years. He approved the construction of tens of thousands of new parking spaces in new parking garages, most next to Metrorail stations. So who wants to take a bus to a dirty crowded train to work when you can drive your SUV to a nice new parking space under a new Smart Growth building, thanks to Guru of Gridlock Zimmerman?
