Red line never ever improve their safety majors except taking more money from us (commuters). Now is that time for raising the fare just because the price of gas is going up.of course their service is undeniably going down! I am using this opportunity to express my frustration with the red line delays every morning and evening.
Have a Blue and Orange day!!

This was an attempted suicide. The ever-increasing attempted suicides are almost always reported as "Person struck by Metro train", so remember that before you spout off. This time it was a long-term, depressed 26 yr old, and he lost 3 limbs. Really tragic. Extremely tough for our solid metro drivers and staff. Many have trouble staying on the job.
