Trains on Red Line may speed up this weekend
Metro General Manager John Catoe responded to questions in an online chat on the WMATA web site this afternoon.
He suggested that the Red Line trains, currently restricted to speeds no greater than 35 miles per hour, might speed up this weekend to alleviate congestion.
A spokesman says Metro officials are meeting with NTSB investigators this afternoon, and transit officials will decide after what speeds Red Line trains will run over the holiday weekend.
"There is no action we can take to alleviate the crowded conditions until we can return to normal speeds," Catoe said in the chat.
