no one was hurt. fox 5 is monitoring metro's budget problems. the preliminary report forecast a gap of nearly $125 million next year and the timing could not be worse. overall ridership is down and not expected to get better any time soon. fox 5's sherri ly has the latest. reporter: what this all boils down to is what metro wants and what it has the money to do. right now metro would like to increase the number of police for security, improve its escalator maintenance and add more workers to reduce the number of double shifts and worker fatigue, but all that comes at a steep cost. metro's ridership and revenue has dropped since 2009 and with the district's high unemployment and slow economic recovery that is not expected to help. the transit agency is also facing a huge surge in the cost of employee benefits and pensions and must prepare for the opening of the dulles rail extension. factor all this in and metro could be looking at a huge hole
10:19 pm
in its budget. labor, health and pension benefit are expected to increase starting next june by $66 million. preparing for the dulles rail, another 20 million that is before the silver line even opens. initiatives to hire more police, security, escalator maintenance and increasing bus service on priority routes would cost another 35 million, plus metro forecasts a 3 million drop in revenue and that adds up to a gap of $124 million. now to close that gap metro could look at asking workers to contribute to their pensions and benefits. that's something they don't do now. virginia, maryland and the district could also increase their subsidies or they could look at restructuring fares. this is just a preliminary budget that is going to be presented to the finance committee on thursday. general manager richard sarles will propose his budget in january and the rest is up to the board. remember fox 5 is monitoring metro for you.
