    Couldn’t figure out why everyone was waiting in line, when it takes all of a minute to walk to the other station entrance, where the gates were working fine.

      Was thinking the exact same thing.

      Came here to post the same thing. The other entrance is a block away.

      Technology has ruined our ability to creativly solve problems. Look at all those idiots on their cellular phones. Try looking at your surroundings and not a screen.

        And inevitably, when the line starts moving, the person in front of you is still glued to their phone and it takes them a good ten seconds to start moving. Makes you want to smack them over the head!

      I came here to say the same thing. Were the gates at the other entrance broken too?

      Or maybe they just weren’t in a rush? The line exiting Columbia Heights during rush hour is often that long and moves quickly.

    LOL. the fact that the employees of metro don’t help make the process faster. idiots

    where is that post about the emergency exit gate?

    • JF

      I don’t really know what they could do. It’s obvious one of the gates is broken. WMATA honestly should add an additional gate where that white sign is. Having only two non handicap gates is not very practical.

    It seems like there has been an enormous uptick in usage for that side of the station with all of the development along M street and increasing density in the area. Metro needs to install more gates.

      +1 THIS. The numbers are only going to keep increasing with the number of developments planned or in construction on the south side of the station.

    The Columbia Heights station is like this every single day, plus at least one of the escalators has been broken for the last 8 months (at least).
