Foggy Bottom Escalator Update
While roaming around the Orange Line on Wednesday morning, I stopped off at Foggy Bottom Station, Metro's eighth busiest, to check on crowding at the escalators. This was a problem one morning last week, when riders had a long wait on the mezzanine and then a long walk up a stopped escalator.
Foggy Bottom has three escalators in the bank, but on the morning of July 28, one was out of service, one was stopped and one was carrying passengers down, hence the crowding to get up.
At about 8 a.m. Wednesday, it was no where near as bad as on July 28, when the crowding became the subject of a video. On Wednesday, one escalator was out of service, one was moving down and one was moving up. (The one under repair will be out till September.)
The line to go up lengthened and shortened depending on when another train arrived. When I finally went up to street level, I looked up and down and found myself alone on the escalator.
