We all have had it drilled into our heads. We all know Metro is undergoing a "massive rebuilding effort."
But for many, it's getting to the point that Metro is just unusable during weekends and even during off-peak service on weekdays.
It's as if Metro is thinking construction must go on, riders be damned.
I wonder what kind of long-term effect this will have on riders. I'm guessing more than a few people will learn to live without Metro and never return.
Does anyone else think it's ridiculous that Metro is closing so much on a weekend when there's a home Caps playoff game, a Nats homestand against the Phillies an Avon "Walk for Breast Cancer" and who knows what else?I'm tempted to think Metro is using the results of its push poll to justify all of this.
I think the only part of their release that's probably accurate is telling those along the Green Line to add 50 minutes to their travel time. I don't see many people lining up for that "service."
For all the other lines--that's right ALL the other lines--they say to add 10 minutes. As someone who's used Metro on the weekends recently, I can say without hesitation that's nonsense. Add at least a half hour for each leg of your trip.
Come on Metro, we know you have a lot to do, but work WITH the community you serve, not against us. Does Metro have ANY common sense?
I will be going to all the Nats game--on my bike!
Remember this question?
Which would you prefer?Who chose the second option? Not many.
*Metro should maintain its accelerated construction schedule to finish as soon as possible.
*Metro should slow down even at the risk that there may be more breakdowns and disruptions.
