McAuliffe, O'Malley, Gray Pledge $75 Million To New Metro Program

Topic number one for the two governors and the mayor: transportation.

On Wednesday, the three pledged $25 million each from Virginia, D.C., and Maryland, which will go towards what has been dubbed the Metro’s “New Momentum Program,” which specifically calls for the installation of larger, eight-car trains to reduce congestion.

“The rail cars are so full today -- we need these eight-car trains," said McAuliffe.

The three committed to working together on a range of issues. Governor McAuliffe led the talks on transportation while Governor O’Malley led the meeting on environmental issues.
