Reporter's Query: How's Your Metrorail Ride?
My colleague, staff writer Katherine Shaver, is wondering if Metro makes you sick -- not figuratively, but literally. And she'd like to hear about your personal experiences.
Since the summer, she notes, Metro trains have been operating on manual control. It's one of the safety measures still in effect following the June 23 Red Line crash. Trains were meant to be run automatically, and control by the operators can create more wear and tear on the equipment.
But what Shaver is wondering is, with all the stopping and stopping involved in positioning the train correctly on the platform, does it create more wear and tear on you as a passenger? Does a long trip leave you slightly nauseated? Or have you learned to take it in stride after all these months?
