The issues raised in this article about costs will be affecting agencies nationwide:

"Metro's proposed operating budget for fiscal 2005 represents a 7 percent increase, driven largely by a sharp rise in health care and pensions for the system's 10,000 employees, as well as an explosion in demand for MetroAccess, the expensive door-to-door paratransit service for the disabled."
