Three Years Later: Are there Any Silver Linings?
It has been three years since Metro killed nine and injured 80 at Ft. Totten. The event has remained a huge cloud over the transit authority.
Over these past years, there has been a lot of Metro news, nearly all of it negative. There have also been a lot of promises and self promotion about how things are getting better.
To Metro's credit fatalities and are down, but there have been A LOT of close calls, and there is still no meaningful oversight.
Have you seen anything change for the better at Metro three years after its worst day?
