NORTH BETHESDA, Md. (WDVM) — A longtime Red Line Metro Station in Montgomery County could get a name change after a nearby mall is now a thing of the past.
It’s been a debate on whether to change the name of White Flint Metro Station in North Bethesda. As many are aware, White Flint Mall was demolished a few years back. And some believe the name does not reflect the community.
Friends of white flint organizers say the area needs a new identity and the new name should include ‘North Bethesda’ in it. Some local officials weighed in on the debate and agree a change should be made.
Once a new name has selected a request for the change must be sent to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
