This should have been our first post, but we're learning.
Metro actually does a pretty good job, at least it would appear, of documenting incidents. Here's the summary for Feb. 2:
--Six trains were taken out of service that day
--McPherson Square station was temporarily closed due to reports of smoke.
--Ridership, according to Metro's stats, was up about 35,000 over the same day last year.
-Five trains taken out of service
--Four trains taken out of service
Do you think the number of trains taken out of service in a day is on par with comparable mass transit systems?
