Ahhh, memories. Metro has given us some great ones over the last year; in the spirit of the holidays I thought I’d share the twelve most memorable, in no great particular semblance of order. It’s been a year of ups and downs for WMATA, so why don’t we look back and smirk, scowl, smile and shrug at some of Metro’s best – and worst – escapades of 2008, to the (heavily butchered) tune of that great holiday carol, the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Twelve handloops dangling!
Eleven movies filming (to boring Metro guidelines)!
Ten percent (and higher) fare increases!
Nine visits to WMATA’s new website!
Eight new days of ridership records!
Seven bags a-searchin’!
Six hookers chillin’!
FIIIIIIIVE FALLOUT 3 ADS!
Four new seat covers…
Three easy SmarTrip transfers…
Two Google transit nixes…
And one really, really, really long Foggy Bottom esc-a-lator line…

OH MAN that made me laugh out loud at work. Excellent song, I sang along in my head. But you know the one thing you forgot?
OOOOONEEEEE de-railed orange line!
I love the photo.
