In light of severe weather expected to impact the DC Metropolitan area on October 29thand 30th, Metro has elected to postpone the Accessibility Excellence Awards program, originally scheduled to take place on the evening of October 30th. We are currently working out the logistics for selecting a new date for the event, and once the date is selected you will be notified by invitation.

 We apologize for any inconvenience, but this decision has been made in the best interests of caution and safety for all event participants and attendees. We look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled event. If you have any questions, please or call 202-962-1100.

Have a safe weekend!
