WMATA says no bus, above-ground Metro tomorrow either

WMATA put out a press release ten minutes ago saying they’d still be running a very reduced service tomorrow. Underground train routes will re-open at their standard 7am Sunday time and will run through the day. While WMATA says they’ll “continue to evaluate rail and road conditions throughout the day on Sunday in hopes of expanding service if conditions improve,” don’t count on catching a bus anytime tomorrow; their release elaborates that in addition to the weather conditions and snow accumulation on routes, workers and contractors have faced challenges getting to work.

Personally I’m a little surprised there’s not a commitment there on getting the yellow line route over the Potomac back open, as well as the leg to Reagan Airport. There’s a lot of above-ground track to clear, to be sure, but the sooner we get all our in and out of town transit running again the better.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
