BETHESDA AND MEDICAL CENTER METRO STATIONS CLOSED THIS WEEKEND
Driving is the best option this weekend for anyone living in Bethesda or beyond on the Red Line.
Metro is closing the Bethesda and Medical Center stations for "track work," etc.
You know the drill: Closures and delays for "repairs" that have yet to produce any tangible improvement in service or safety.
Gluttons for punishment will be able to board shuttle buses between Grosvenor and Friendship Heights. Personally, I would just drive.
Metro got their fare increase. Pepco got their rate increase. We're paying for it all, yet our customer experience has not improved. Yet politicians' bank accounts grow fatter by the day, and they heartily approved all of the above.
The "new" Metro "repairs" and "work" are the Emperor's New Clothes almost as much as Bus Rapid Transit.
No one can show any tangible improvement in Metro performance, yet closures and inconvenient weekend schedules persist.
