My commute this morning was TERRIBLE. It started with a 20 minute delay at Le Fant Plaza due to a fire at Mc Phereson Square. Finally my train leaves only to go 2 stops and then we are told the train is going out of service. I get off and wait another 15 minutes for another train. That train gets one stop prior to mines and goes out of service. I then had to wait for another train. What normally is a 45 minute commute turned into a hour and half. What normally is a 20 minute trip from Le fant Plaza to work turned into an hour long trip. And Metro has the NERVE to be increasing fares. This is on top of the fact EVERY day last week there were problems with both the Green and Orange lines. Unbelievable

Close the bridges and let the people walk.

We all want walkable communities, right>

How about "Life on the VRE" and "Life on MARC" ?
