@charlesallen @SimplySJG @justingeorge @ggwash @betterDCregion @wmata I have advocated for a flat fare since the 1990s. @wmata has insisted time and again it is absolutely impossible to do that because "just because." For all the svc cuts over the years the fare should be flat with free xfers btwn rail & bus. Better still, make it free. Period.
@charlesallen @SimplySJG @justingeorge @ggwash @betterDCregion @wmata What @councilofdc @MayorBowser have horribly failed at is holding @wmata accountable. Compel them to provide rail & bus service that actually serves the public. Make it easy, convenient, to reach all parts of the region w/o having to use cars not less than 18/7.
@charlesallen @SimplySJG @justingeorge @ggwash @betterDCregion @wmata @councilofdc @MayorBowser Reimagine the surface lines so intra and inter neighborhood, activity ctr trips is as easy or easier than getting in an auto. @wmata has actively, openly sabotaged bus svc at least the 30 yrs I've lived here to drive away customers, justify more cuts.
@charlesallen @SimplySJG @justingeorge @ggwash @betterDCregion @wmata @councilofdc @MayorBowser The Council, and esp Mayor Bowser, ignore residents & condone this abuse & dereliction of duty by wmata by failing to (literally) lay down the law. We won't reduce cars in the District if there are no convenient, reliable alternatives. Our transit network is anything but.
