Mayor and City Council

NBC Washington: DC Mayor: Why can’t metro accomplish maintenance without cutting hours? “D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is speaking out against Metro’s plan to cut back on weekend and late-night rail service a day before Metro is set to hold a public hearing to discusses those plans. Bowser told News4 she does not understand why D.C.‘s transit system needs extra time to do the maintenance other cities can handle with normal operating hours. Metro has four different proposals that would slash operating hours and close stations at midnight or 1 a.m. on weekends. One plan suggests to have Metrorail running from just noon to 11 p.m. on Sundays. The plans would essentially be a continuation of the maintenance WMATA is doing through its SafeTrack plan, which Bowser also questioned.”

Public Safety

Fox5DC: Metro proposing changes that would reduce operating hours after SafeTrack ends “Metro is proposing changes that would reduce operating hours after the SafeTrack maintenance plan comes to an end next spring. Officials say the proposed reduced operating schedule will be needed in order to maintain the safety level they hope to achieve after almost a year’s worth of safety surges. SafeTrack, an accelerated track work plan to rehabilitate Metrorail, began in June of this year.”
