So, The Post says Metro is suspending SmarTrip sales. Apparently, they didn’t order more cards when they switched to the new “you need a SmarTrip card or you’re hosed” parking system this past month. And now they’re running very low.
Better yet, instead of accepting cash for parking until the crisis is over, they’re making people buy farecards for the appropriate amount and collecting those.
Who the hell works for Metro anyway? Former occupants of the now-defunct DC General Psych Ward?
