Props to Red Line Metro Driver

Photo by PoPville flickr user philliefan99

“Dear PoPville,

Last night, heading North on the Red Line (towards Grosvenor, etc.), I had the best driver I’ve ever had during a Metro problem (the person struck by a train at Bethesda). My driver, who hopefully can be identified by the fact that we were heading north and arrived at Friendship at approximately 6:04 pm, was outstanding in terms of clearly, audibly and regularly telling his passengers what was happening, what would happen and when things changed. He was clear, sufficiently loud, made regular announcements and provided us with the best information I have ever received during an incident. (I ride the Red line twice a day, every week day, so I have had my share of incidents.) I hope hears how much his hard work was appreciated – I’ve submitted a comment to Metro, but wanted to post it here, as well. Thank you.”
