When you realize Metro is a giant grift, it all makes sense.
The actual transit part is a pesky annoyance reluctantly provided as a cover story.
If you don’t believe me on the reluctant part, just think how much service has been cut over the last decade. Think of how metro treated the transit dependent and essential workers during the pandemic. Think about them paying Lyft for a late night service substitute
Metro calls a lid when there’s a dusting is snow!
Think how often Metro itself has told riders to “seek alternatives.”
Remember the weird bus strike? Metro was like the honey badger while people were cut off.
For the people who don't really need it, Metro is a great transit system.
For those who desperately need it, it's a nightmare.
by people who don't really need it, i mean 9-5 office workers who've been teleworking since march. the same people who, when metro is melting down, can afford a surge price uber. they love the theory of metro.
and they love it because they're almost totally immune to it's many failings.
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.
