dc.description.abstract This document records user-submitted responses to questions asking readers to share their memories about the Washington Metro between 2001 and 2006. It was an interactive part of an online exhibit, "Building the Washington Metro," archived here: The site tells the story of the Washington Metro, a 103-mile rapid transit system serving Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia. Planning for Metro began in the 1950s, construction began in 1969, and the first segment opened for operation in 1976. Metro is one of the largest public-works projects ever built, and it is the second-busiest rail transit system in the United States. The site was researched and written by Zachary M. Schrag, author of The Great Society Subway: A History of the Washington Metro (The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2006).
