Metro is looking at a $72 million budget shortfall, and if D.C., Maryland and Virginia can't find money to help close the gap, Metro riders will be facing cuts in service.
The $1.47 billion operating budget takes effect in July.
Metro officials have not released an exact list of cuts, but reportedly are reviewing some of the cuts they considered before.
That could mean longer waits for trains, cutting some underused bus routes and maybe changing late-night weekend service.
No cuts can be made without the public's input. If approved, changes would take effect in September.
