Update from WWATA:
“At approximately 7 a.m., Metro’s Rail Operations Control Center (ROCC) identified an intermittent IT network connection issue that impacted communications between systems.
Customers throughout the rail system were notified to expect delays and received notification through social, text, Web and Metro Alerts to allow for additional travel time while the issue was assessed.
