They're Lining Up Early

Crowds line up at Foggy Bottom to get their hands on a new iFareAdjustment 3.0.1.*

After much fanfare and a few last minute technical delays (and here) that cost the agency some $60,000, Metro is finally ready to unveil the highly anticipated release of iFareAdjustment 3.0.1 during this evening's rush hour. It is the third fare innovation this year! The iFareAdjustment 3.0.1 includes new features like:
  • A new 20-cent peak-of-the-peak fee during afternoon weekday travel periods
  • An increase in the cost of three Metrorail passes
  • A 25-cent increase in cost for Metrorail customers who use a paper fare card instead of a SmarTrip card
  • SmarTrip wackiness
  • SmartBenefits screw ups
  • Crazy signage
  • More single tracking
  • Bigger offloads
  • Dumbfounded tourists
  • Longer broken escalators
  • Ruder employees
  • Slower operating faregates
  • More broken trains
  • Hotter hot cars
  • Longer delays
  • And much, much more!
It's everything you love to hate about Metro at a new, higher price!

*Crowds like this are expected for some time.
