Join me for D.C. area traffic, transit chat
Some recent topics:
- I heard few complaints over the weekend about how our local transportation agencies handled a storm that brought more snow more quickly than many of us had anticipated. How do you rate the performance of the highway and transit agencies? How do you rate the performance of your fellow drivers and transit users? (I noticed a commenter on one of my posts advocated not turning on the windshield defroster when the temperature is 25 degrees or below. Does that work for others?)
- Metro riders may be having trouble keeping up with all the changes they face. The transit authority board approved a fare surcharge of 10 cents to start March 1. The same day, the transit authority released General Manager John B. Catoe Jr.'s proposed budget for the fiscal year starting in July. That will renew the debate about fare increases and service cuts.
- In my Sunday column, I published a response from Montgomery County about the statement by Action Committee for Transit and other groups that the county has a secret plan to build a roadway under Rockville Pike between the National Naval Medical Center and the Medical Center Metro station.
- We had yet another tragedy on the Metro tracks when two workers were killed on the Red Line. On Friday, the National Transportation Safety Board issued an update on its investigation into the cause.
