Every day, people are running away from Metro. Ridership is down more than 16 percent since its peak in 2009. And on top of that, the agency is increasing the fares again.

They are charging more and giving less. Metro is cutting 500 jobs and planning to cut 1,000 more. Where is all that money going? Plus, on top of that, single-tracking goes on more and more during rush hour.

It’s amazing how Metro stays in business. Run, run, people! Run!
