So Long, Blue Line

This is the service WMATA will be providing for Veteran’s Day. Note the Blue Line doesn’t exist anymore, instead it’s replaced with a “shuttle” service from National Airport to Arlington Cemetery.

My money is on WMATA making this a permanent thing in the near future. So long, Blue Line, you never had a chance.

UPDATE: Well, 10/21 came and went and guess what… these escalators now have a date of 10/24. In addition WMATA went ahead and shut down another escalator for “modernization”. It’ll be back up in January… maybe.

Sorry, We’re Closed

WMATA promised to be open an extra hour for the end of the Washington [football team I won't say] game.

This means they would be closing at 1 AM instead of Midnight. Some riders found this wasn’t the case:





Apparently nobody told the station managers about this extended service. WMATA’s response to those upset: take a number.
