Orange Line delays

Mark Berman

An Orange Line train heading towards Vienna had some door issues a short time ago, causing delays for that and other Orange Line trains. The problem occurred shortly before 8:30 a.m. and has been resolved, but westbound Orange Line trains might still face some residual delays.

Weird, I experience delays at EFC going the other direction. Waited 10 mins for a train which was already full, the next one was 5 minutes behind it. Meanwhile I watched as 6 empty west bound trains pulled through.

This of course balances out my very positive experience with their customer service department. A fare machine in Union Station withdrew money from my account but did not add value to my smart trip card. When I emailed them asking who to contact to get the process started of getting my money back they actually credited my account back the next morning. I was very pleasantly surprised.

No, that's normal service. You probably missed the invisible trains that keep Metro "on-time."
