Rail and Public Transportation, Department of

Page 405, after line 17, insert:
"E.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, as a requirement for the provision of current funding levels received from the Commonwealth for the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission, the Commission shall allocated such funds as may be necessary, up to a maximum of $7,000,000 from nongeneral fund resources provided to the Commission, to implement a pilot project to install automobile counters at the parking garages adjacent to the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority adjacent to the Vienna and West Falls Orange line METRO rail stations."

(This amendment directs the use of up to $7,000,000 in NVTC funding provided by the state for the installation of garage counters at the Vienna and West Falls Church Orange line METRO rail stations. Such counters would incentivize additional riders to use the rail line in lieu of driving, thereby maximizing use of the facilities and reducing congestion along adjacent roadways."
