Metro GM updates Sen. Kaine on SafeTrack
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (ABC7) —
Tim Kaine got a personal update on how the SafeTrack push is going with General Manager Paul Wiedefeld, when he took a ride on Metro Monday.
Kaine told reporters that he doesn't like fare increases, but Metro has to make the numbers work.
According to Metro, 40 percent of peak hour riders are federal employees.
Senator Kaine now plans to take his discussions back to Capitol Hill to try and sway budget and appropriation committees to minimize cuts.
Kevin Lewis has more.
