THEY CAN’T EVEN MAKE THE TRAINS RUN ON TIME: DC Metro may shut down entire rail lines for months.

Entire rail lines in Washington’s Metrorail subway system could be shut down for months at a time to conduct repairs, the transit system’s leaders acknowledged Wednesday.

Board of directors Chairman Jack Evans raised the possibility during a Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments conference, saying there is not enough time to complete work during nights and weekends, according to The Washington Post.

“So in order to do repairs that are necessary, it may come to the point where we have to close the entire Blue Line for six months,” Evans said. “People will go crazy. But there are going to be hard decisions that have to be made in order to get this fixed.”

When you spend decades running a transit system as a jobs-program for connected incompetents, this is what you get.
