The Week That Was March 18-24


Up until yesterday, it looked like Metro might have a chance at improving its performance over the last time we did this, but March 24 was a particularly bad day. There were 28 events last go around and 36 this week, according to Metro. Making its first appearance in our tally is the "rerouted for service" reason. Not sure what that means, but we guess it led to some angry passengers.

Here's the damage from last week:
