Orange line needs to be all 8 car trains.

This is ridiculous. Nearly every morning over the past few weeks there have been major issues, including this morning.

More than an hour on a usual 15 minute ride. And they want to charge an even higher fare.

Why could they not have told us about the single tracking. They just kept saying there was a disruption ahead and delays. And then at least 3 different sick passengers, including the train I was on. I was on the train for 1 hour and 25 minutes from Vienna to Metro Center. And for this Metro wants an additional $2 per day from me?

I wonder how many of the sick passengers got that way because of the overheated, overcrowded, lurching trains.

Pull a Regan and fire all Metro employees.
