Crowding on Red Line tonight
Post staff writer Lena H. Sun reports that the platform at Farragut North has been jammed for a while now, pretty late in the evening rush.
Sun wonders why the station manager can't leave the booth to make some announcements about whatever is causing this and when relief will come in the form of more trains.
There was a train malfunction at Medical Center, but that was resolved more than an hour ago, Metro says.
Plenty of Twitter about the Red Line scene tonight. Two themes: The platforms and trains are jammed; there are no announcements explaining what's going on.
Not a good start to a week when Metro is going to tell us about its plans for service cutbacks. (Punchline: How can we tell?)
It's a good thing there's no game tonight at Verizon Center. Tuesday, though, the Caps will be playing.
And another thing to watch out for tonight through Thursday night on the Red Line: track maintenance. Riders between Medical Center and Grosvenor should add at least 20 minutes from 8 p.m. through the midnight closing. (That's a scheduled slowdown. Unlike the one you're experiencing now.)
