This isn't DC's fault, but it blows nevertheless.
New federal regulations will not allow Metro to operate as a super-cheap charter service. In other words, you know how Metro takes you to Fed Ex Field and Wolf Trap? Yeah, don't get used to that. Those jobs are all going to private companies now. The change will mean that we lose out on cheaper fares and the cash-strapped Metro will lose out on almost two million dollars annually. Worst of both worlds.
Thanks, Federal Transit Administration!
