3 Things I Hate About Metro

I caught this Metro bus reflection in the glass shaft of the Glenmont Metro Station's broken elevator. The first year I lived in DC I was next door to the Waterfront Metro Station in Southwest. I thought the Metro train was better than San Francisco's Muni railway (A system which I admire). It wasn't long before I started noticing flaws. The first was that the elevators were always broken creating difficulties for people in wheelchairs among others. Because of the out-of-order elevators, special shuttles were provided from other stations, which created a hassle. The second major thing was the installation of the new money feeders on the buses that you can't put a penny in. And my third and most recent Metro pet peeve is the way bus after bus cruises down 16th St without stopping to pick anyone up during evening rush hour.
