So, Metro finally came out with a broadside awareness campaign to inform customers that there are speed restrictions on the Red Line.
We first heard about them on the 17th, and we asked Metro.
They said "there are some track issues between Tenleytown and Medical Center that have several speed restrictions in place."
We tweeted about it.
We asked Metro to be more specific.
They sent us to this press release, which only vaguely hints at what the "issues" might be.
Of course, we don't know why Metro was not completely forthcoming last week, but if you've been riding the western Red Line for the past several days, you must have wondered what the heck was going on.
Now that Metro has come out with this belated press release, it appears as though Metro had been holding out and only decided to finally come clean after some major attention was starting to get focused on the issue.
What was that about restoring confidence?
Should we chalk this one up to the communications consultants?
