New Metro Video!

YouTube Preview Image
Metro has released a new video for riders, providing instructions for riding Metro the same way a flight attendant provides airplane safety instructions.  In the same part creepy/part really entertaining/part informative mix of Metro’s other videos, this one includes a computer-generated flight attendant and four Metro passengers.  My favorite part is when the three remaining passengers (one gets kicked off the train for bad behavior) react to a mechanical door issue by shaking their fists and flailing their arms about.  Seems pretty realistic, considering some of the reactions from my fellow Metro commuters.   Enjoy!

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at)!

  1. Who would want to be sitting on the train for 3 minutes listening to safety instructions?

    On a plane, the instructions are given as it is taking off and of course you can eat/drink on a plane.

    I’ve seen people stick their legs into the door as it closing so they can get on
