The Metro system was designed to look good, not actually work. The WMATA, like the USPS has become a benefits disbursement organization and not a functioning agency providing services to paying customers. Those that ride the system are not paying for upkeep, but the retirement benefits of someone no longer working or out on “disability” and most of the ridership gets some sort of gubmint subsidy so we’re paying three times.
1- local taxes, 2- federal taxes, 3- actual fares out of pocket.
