Metro officials say a hardware failure caused their train monitoring system to shut down twice over the weekend.
When Metro raises its fares in July, riders who use paper fare cards will see big changes.
Nine dead, eighty injured. Three years ago today, the worst accident in Washington D.C. Metro history happened.
Metro watchdog groups say the transit system is safer than it was three years ago when nine people were killed in a crash, but there’s room for improvement.
Metrorail riders will soon see more trains during the morning and afternoon rush hours.
Metro says shuttle buses will replace trains on a part of the orange line this weekend, leading to delays of 20 minutes for customers using the bus.
The nine people killed in a Metrorail crash in June 2009 in northeast Washington will be honored with a plaque near the crash site next month.
Metro has a new map.
Metro officials have known for six years that some of the agency’s rail cars have brake parts that fail sooner than expected, but the transit agency did not upgrade the equipment because it didn’t have the money.
Metro has pulled 16 rail cars out of service as a precaution because they have the same brake equipment as a car that experienced a problem earlier this week.
Maintenance work will affect four of Metro’s five lines this weekend.
Public transit in the Washington area is expected to run on a regular schedule as Hurricane Irene moves north.
