“Dear PoPville,

Curious as to whether anyone has more clarity on Metro not charging fares when end up not taking the metro? I thought they were not charging for non-rides, but I noticed this morning when I gave up on the red line after waiting twenty minutes and realizing that it just wasn’t WMATA’s day, that I was charged the base fare on my card. Just wondering if you need to talk to the station manager to refund it each time (which seems very impractical), or if it is supposed to automatically happen?”

Ed. Note: Didn’t someone say that Metro reimburses at the end of the month? Am I imagining that?
