WikiProject Washington Metro is a project to better organize information in articles related to the Washington Metro. This page contains the suggestions and opinions of interested contributors; it is hoped that this project will help to focus and coordinate the efforts of all.


This WikiProject aims primarily to coordinate, organize and develop all Wikipedia activities concerning the Washington Metro. Specifically, it deals with everything under the banner of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, from the beginning of service to the present day. This includes the Metrorail system, all Metro stations, Metrobus, fare media, historic service, etc.

Naming Conventions[edit]

  • Metro stations: Use [[Station Name Station]] (or [[Station Name (WMATA station)]], depending on whether the name of the station already exists in another location), as written on the official Metro system map. Please use endashes (–) instead of hyphens (-) in the titles and articles, and make sure that all abbreviations are spelled out in full, for consistency reasons. For example, use "Mount Vernon Square" instead of "Mt Vernon Sq." Acronyms such as "SW," "SEU," and "VT" should remain as acronyms.

Ordering Conventions[edit]

  • Metro stations: Stations are listed from west to east (left to right on the system map) or from south to north (bottom to top on the system map).
