Transportation news roundup

By Michael D. Bolden

Jennifer Buske and Luke Rosiak report on the delays afflicting Virginia Railway Express riders.

The Examiner reports that Metro's decision to move forward with safety improvements recommended by the National Transportation Safety Board means a plan to increase the number of eight-car trains during rush hour will have to wait.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue officials say a Virginia Department of Transportation plan to adopt narrower street widths poses a problem: The streets wouldn't be able to accommodate some modern firefighting equipment, according to a report in the Fairfax Times.

Greater Greater Washington has information on a new app that shows real-time locations of Metrorail trains.

The blog Unsuck DC Metro has a Metro holiday gift guide so you can take the transit system with you wherever you go.

If you missed it Sunday, Dr. Gridlock reported on what a coming change in the amount allowed for federal transit benefits may mean to you.
