  • And then, like today, the bus service is cancelled due to snow? Hahaha, metro you suck so bad that sometimes it’s just too easy to make fun of you.

  • The most pathetic is that, if you connect from the Red Line to the Yellow Line, you have to take the shuttle bus, then to take a red line metro running every 15 minutes (at best) to go from Metro Center and Gallery Place, to finally get on the Yellow Line…
    It would have been smart to allow re-entry in Gallery Place, 3 blocks from the shuttle…
    But here is the point with Metro, you can do all the track maintenance you want, it will never fix your brain!

    Personally, I decided to drive…
