Like clockwork, trains at Ballston are showing 6-8 minute gaps starting around 8:30am, whereas before they are every 2-4 minutes. Why am we going to be charged an extra 20 cents for the "privilege" of riding between 7:30am and 9:00am when the trains are running less frequently at 8:30?

Metro insists that there have been no service reductions. The trains that you are missing at 8:30am may be invisible or they may be redirected to 2am service, but they still exist.

Trust Metro.
