Why are there three proposed Silver Line station names with 'Reston' in them? That is totally confusing to customers.
Most citizens think of destination 'Reston' as the Reston Town Center. That particular station does not open until Phase II. If passengers get off at the Herndon/Monroe station, or the Wiehle Avenue station, looking for Reston Town Center because 'Reston' is in the station name, it will be an awful experience.
The Herndon/Monroe Park & Ride station should be named Herndon, or Herndon/Oak Hill, or Herndon/Floris. But certainly it should not have 'Reston' in the name.
WMATA has indicated to Fairfax County staff that Silver Line station names previously recommended were confusing to riders. Through research, WMATA found that part of the confusion was related to the repeated use of “Tysons,” “Reston,” and “Herndon” in the proposed names. We are working with the public and project stakeholders now to recommend station names that meet WMATAs station naming policy principles, ensuring names are relevant, brief, unique, and evocative.
