Posting information on board members and the Metro Riders Advisory Council in Metrorail stations
At the Silver Spring Transit Center there is an information center called Trips. Operated by Montgomery County's Department of Transportation, it provides information on transit and sells various types of transit passes.
I checked it out the other day and I was surprised to see that a newly posted information board
included an advocacy flyer concerning the FY2018 budget for WMATA, which calls for fare increases and service decreases.
I wasn't surprised that the flyer was still up, although the date for action had passed.
I think in the past I've suggested that contact information for WMATA Board members be posted in Metrorail stations. A couple years ago, then BART Board Member Zakhary Mallett suggested this for their stations, although I don't think the proposal was adopted ("BART director wants to display board's photos in cars, stations," San Francisco Chronicle).
But seeing the flyer made me realize that at the very least, contact information for the WMATA Riders' Advisory Council should be posted, as well as an information board broadcasting their actions. WMATA does post information boards in stations when actions/hearings are scheduled concerning fares and service changes.
Sometimes you will see information from chapters of the National Association of Railroad Passengers posted in train stations. You don't see this at Union Station, but you do at Penn Station in Baltimore (at least back when I used to ride MARC to Baltimore a few days each week for work).
The various "commuter stores" -- Arlington, Fairfax, Montgomery have versions -- should probably post this kind of information too.
Note from a design perspective, the information board is a "staff intervention" designed to call out information on frequently asked questions (e.g., the map of the Downtown Metrorail Stations is posted) and communications of urgency, such as MARC railroad service changes designed to aid people impacted by Metrorail repair shutdowns.
