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 β€œseek alternatives.”

Remember the weird bus strike? Metro was like the honey badger while people were cut off.

So soon? The 7000s must be worse than we know.
Subway cars should have decades-long lifespans. Metro renewed its fleet a couple years ago.
Take a look at how old some of the cars on the Tokyo subway are:

they don't require masks.

they say they do, but they don't.

the whole thing is absurd.
and since metro won't enforce their BS "requirement," exactly who did they think would?

the people that run metro are utter morons
i'm honestly surprised there haven't been several violent altercations because of the imbecility of the "policy."

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.

Metro still pushing their BS β€œrequired” line in their surveys.

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

Bad idea.

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

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

Look at Metro’s β€œGM” in comparison.

So embarrassing and screwed up. #wmata

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?
