Metro still pushing their BS “required” line in their surveys.

No enforcement, no denial of service.
Are they contemplating enforcement?

Bad idea.
The problem is that for a lot of people required means something.
Instead of “required,” say “out of respect for your fellow riders,” and say “we’ll give you one of you don’t have one.”

It’s interesting to see the growing ripple effect of people who are realizing just how corrupt, broken and uncaring Metro is. #wmata
Metro’s not some poor little helpless orphan. It’s like a greedy, alcoholic & abusive spouse who blames you for all its problems. And every time it promises to do better, it lets you down and then threatens you and asks for money.
And it has killed A LOT of people

WaPo beclowns itself again.

This “news”paper participated in my doxxing because I did what they wouldn’t— I, with your massive help, held Metro accountable. #wmata

Milan’s transit system saying “all staff on the pitch,” as they reopen from one of the biggest outbreaks in the world.

Look at Metro’s “GM” in comparison.

So embarrassing and screwed up. #wmata
Milan’s post virus service…
The “challenges” the “GM” cites are universal to anyone who works. #amazing #fail

I'm reading articles about "transit after the virus." They all seem to say transit will need more money.

I think that's probably true.

Where's it going to come from though? Every level of government is/going to be broke.
One likely case: Agencies will raid capital funds to cover the operating budgets.

Metro is a poster child for where that ends up.
Congestion pricing seems too elastic to make a huge difference, and with super high unemployment, how many will even be going to work, transit or not?
