Orange Line crowding

By Washington Post Editors

8:37 A.M. UPDATE: Metro says the Blue and Yellow Line delays. However, there is severe congestion in the Orange Line Station at Rosslyn due to the earlier offloading of a train. Expect the Orange Line to be crowded.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE: The delays are continuing. We've also seen reports that an Orange Line train at Rosslyn has emptied, so there may be delays ahead on that line, too.

Original post: A train malfunction at Reagan National Airport, that has been cleared, is causing delays to Largo and Mount Vernon Square.

Just another day on Metro. It never gets any better. A train malfunction here, a train malfunction there.

So what if you're late for work, important meeting, job interview, etc.

"We regret the inconvenience & appreciate your patience."

Don't you feel better now? We knew you would. Thank you for riding Metro. Sucker!

How many Metro execs/fat cats commute to work via Metro?
