Don’t Fall Down
Hold on tight boys and girls. The Examiner tells us that Metro is planning on sticking with the manual operational mode that it’s been in since the Fort Totten crash of 2009. The folks at WMATA apparently need another several more years before they can replace all of the potentially faulty safety modules. The only way they can speed up the process is with more shutdowns or fewer hours of service — is anyone excited about either of those options? So be prepared for quite a few more bumpy rides, but just remember, it’s all in the name of safety.
