Blue and Orange Line delays

8:45 A.M. UPDATE:
The Metro delays on the Orange and Blue lines have been lifted, according to WMATA.

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:
The delays continue unabated. The Post's Michael Bolden is still sitting on that train, now stuck in a tunnel outside the Capitol South station. On Twitter, commuters are reporting waits of more than 10 minutes between stations.

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:
The train malfunction has been resolved, but delays continue on the Blue and Orange Lines. An Orange Line train heading into the city from New Carrollton is unmoving on the tracks just west of the Cheverly Station, reports the Post's Michael Bolden.

A train malfunction outside of the Farragut West station is causing delays on the Blue and Orange lines. Trains are delayed heading towards Vienna and Franconia-Springfield.

7:50 A.M. UPDATE:
The Blue Line delays have been lifted.

7:35 A.M. UPDATE:
The train malfunction has been resolved, but delays remain on the Blue Line in both directions from Van Dorn Street.

There are Blue Line delays in both directions due to a disruption at the Van Dorn Street station. A train malfunction outside the Van Dorn Street station has caused trains to share the same track between that station and the Franconia-Springfield stop.

15 minute waits at Ballston this morning. And for this we pay "peak" fairs. And they have the gall to want to charge even more? Up to 50 cents more?
