Welcome to the new Metro!
Things are really turning around.
In a bold move, Metro is apparently going to tackle its intractable escalator and elevator problems head on. No more excuses.
Check it out! This Sarles guy is really a breath of fresh air! A real go getter! Hands on.
Here's the plan:
1. Hire some consultants ... SCREECH ... wait a minute.
That sounds like the tired, old Metro.
Metro has been "running" escalators and elevators for more than three decades. Now's the time to call in the consultants?
Soon, Metro will have more working consultants than working escalators. Your fare increases at work.

Red Line capacity to remain same, yet congestion will ease. Hmmm. (WaPo)
