  • So if I need to get to Alexandria from Georgia Ave, I’m SOL?

    • Couldn’t you just take the Yellow to King St?

      • Well, that was the plan but it says: “Yellow Line trains will operate every 10 minutes between Huntington and National Airport only”, sooo…..

    • I guess the best option would be take the 64 down to Metro Center and catch a Blue Line train to Alexandria. Significantly more inconvenient of course.

    • No, but leave yourself literally 2 hours to take Blue to Metro Center, Red to Gallery Place, Green to Georgia Ave. With weekend wait times, it will take forever.

      • I saw you are starting at Georgia Ave, so reverse it. I agree with M, that the 64 to Metro Center might be the better option if you time the bus well.

  • Goddammit. I loathe Metro with every ounce of my being.

  • Give us riders a couple weeks notice, shut the whole system down for a month and work on it 24/7. This tinker toy rebuilding managed by the The Three Stooges has no end.

    • I look forward to losing my job when Metro shuts down completely for a month.

      • Presumably, there’d be special bus service mimicking the lines if they were to do this.

        • I tried taking the green line shuttle from gallery place yesterday and it literally took 10 min to go 3 blocks so someone finally rang the bell and the driver offered to let us off, at which point multiple people gave up and got off (myself included).

  • Has anyone been on the roads this morning? I’m trying to figure out if I can reasonably get to Alexandria today.
