Metrorail service is sub-par. I didn’t think it could get any worse, but it has, and unfortunately, I have to ride it.
Trains are continuously late, cars have been reduced packing people in like cattle during rush hours. They are filthy, air conditioning in many of them barely or don’t work, windows leak and cars are sloshing with water during heavy rains. However, money was found to put up “train tracker” signs and a canopy at government center — amazing.
I find it interesting that a substantial amount of money was spent to build bike paths that only a handful of people use, when the money could have been better spent improving Metrorail and bus service for thousands of residents. Now we get the exciting news the rates are going up — how nice! I think those in charge should take a few rush-hour rides when it’s raining in a car with no AC and really savor the experience.
