Metro adds daily escalator stats
Days after Metro announced that it had reorganized the oversight of its escalator division, there has been at least one small forward-facing change. This week, the agency tweaked its Web site's escalator outage reports page to include not just a listing of broken vertical transport, but summaries illustrating the number of total outages and their basic causes.
It's a move towards the sort of accountability the Post aimed to provide with its "Going up?" performance tracker widget, which has been keeping tabs on problem spots and trends over time since July.
The shake-up did not fire longtime division head David Lacosse, but created a higher-level position, general superintendent of elevator and escalator programs, and filled it with Rodrigo Bitar.
