A petition was brought The Washington Metro Area Transportation Authority (WMATA) in an effort to keep Gallaudet University as a station listing near the NY Ave area.
The official Announcement came out:
While the New York Avenue got dropped and replaced with a NoMa-GU name I was kind of confused. But don't worry.. for a year during the name change transition time, it'll still be a NY Avenue/GU station.
While Gallaudet Students can cheer, there's also other stations that have changed their names.
