Metro, Board the Bus

Now while the Post gets all snarky with Metro for catering lunches, I’m non-pulsed about the $15,000 a year tab for 15 people for 50 lunches. That’s about $20 per person per day, a deal in catering-land. Just ask Tiff about Ridgewells Catering.

No, what really incenses me, and is my very key annoyance with the entire Metro Board, is encapsulated in this short last-paragraph quote:

“If they would serve that lunch somewhere outside the Beltway and tell the board members to get there by bus on their own, it would be a great expenditure of public money,” said Ben Ross, head of Action Committee for Transit. None of the board members is a regular Metrobus rider.

Ah, there is nothing like the Board of a company not using its products daily. Good luck with those kinda bosses, Dan Tangherlini. You’re We’re gonna need it!
