Poll: Has Metro’s mayhem affected you this week?

The Metro is operating at 40% service after the 7000 series railcars were pulled from service to be inspected for the same defect that recently caused a derailment in Arlington.

Metro has said that passengers should expect to wait up to 40 minutes for service on the Blue, Orange, Yellow, Green and Silver lines.

The service cuts come just as the transit system was starting to recover from a pandemic that caused ridership to tank. Even before that, there were concerns that Metro ridership was in a death spiral, and elected leaders like U.S. Rep. Gerald E. Connolly have blasted the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority for ongoing issues that have eroded public trust.
