    “Not too bad”?
    “NOT TOO BAD”?

    3 metros per hour in downtown DC on the red line, and you call that “not too bad”…
    Ah ah ah…

      That’s reasonably close to non-rush-hour weekday (~1 train every 10 mins), and probably just a few minutes off normal weekend schedules (~1 train every 15 minutes), from my ballpark guesstimates

      If you’re still concerned about transportation strictly within “DOWNTOWN DC” that the red line operates on over the weekend of December 27-29, I’d suggest you walk to the closest stop on an unaffected line, or check out WMATA bus schedules to get you to your weekend destinations.

      I’m not affiliated with WMATA at all… I’m just not really picking up the outrage that you are throwing down here, chief.
