So how did this affect your commute this morning?


“Metro overnight temporarily removed all 3000-series cars from service after we received a report of a door malfunction for which we need to identify the cause. This voluntary safety action reduces the number of available rail cars by ~15%.

As a result, you may notice more 6-car (vs 8-car) trains. We have also resumed Grosvenor turnbacks, making 32 addl cars available. Every effort will be made to keep normal train intervals. Apologies for any inconvenience. Your safety is our highest priority.
