D.C. Metro stations to offer DVD rentals, trolley tours

Posted on June 25, 2010

Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) riders looking to pick up a movie on their way home will not have to go very far. The video store is coming to a Metrorail station as early as this fall.

 

On Thursday, Metro’s board of directors approved a license agreement with NCR/Blockbuster and Movie Solution to place DVD rental machines in stations and to allow Old Town Trolley Tours to sell tickets for its familiar green and orange trolley buses that provide sightseeing tours of Washington, D.C.’s monuments and other points of interest.

 

In exchange for use of the Metrorail system for the rental of movies and sale of tour tickets, Metro will receive an estimated $928,000 over an eight-year period with guaranteed revenue of $116,000 in the first year.
