Metro was so much better when there were only three lines.
I feel bad for everyone involved all the time, at this point. But Metro is now that cool kid from high school that fell off the deep end

Back in the day, you could leave around 5am and beat the #wmata rush hour mess. But these ‘late clearing trackwork’ BS changed that

Left the DC metro area in ’92. #wmata What happened to you?

Often it seems like the apocalypse will arrive before the train…
#wmata has 50% of train lines dead today & they are about to take over the “troubled” silver spring thing? Hahaha! Sense of impending doom.

WMATA Red Line suffering from a mysterious appearance of black oil. Wasn’t that an X-Files plot? http://t.co/Pmj9dsYflU

Walking down A street telling people metro is closed. Feels like I’m some mythical harbinger of doom. I need a scythe.

So there’s unexplained oil on the #wmata tracks. Ppl scrubbing. Anyone think to just set it on fire? What’s one more fire at this point?!

These people would be out of material if the trains ran on time.

Remember: #WMATA trips are lovingly handcrafted from hope and misplaced tractor parts. They take time because they’re rustic.

Didn’t think it was possible, but DC metro makes me regret ever talking shit about the MTA. How do ppl live like this?

DC (and USA) should focus and invest in improving public transportation. Why? Because what happened today could’ve been avoided. #wmata

Simple Math Tweet: To properly operate #WMATA you would need a 2000 car fleet to account for 100% 8 car trains every 3 mins & proper maint.

Because of course you had to drag politics into it.

I probably wouldn’t vote for Dr. Ben Carson , but i would vote on him to perform brain surgery on who ever is running the #wmata
