There are plenty of seats available on Metro Friday, if a flurry of photos on Twitter are to be believed. The system opened at 4 AM Friday morning and is running on a rush hour schedule till 9 PM. Where is everybody? Driving seems like it would be difficult!
Metro will open two hours early on Saturday to accommodate people attending the Women’s March on Washington.
