DC has some of the shortest train wait times, BUT…

Once the Blue Line 12-minute wait times are in place, Blue won't be just the worst line in DC -- it will have some of the worst service of any metro line in the entire United States .

Silver gains seconds, Blue loses minutes

Blue Line service is being cut to make space for the new Silver Line. But the costs outweight the benefits -- lost time for blue line riders from cuts is between 5 and 11 times greater than benefits gained by Silver Line riders.

Think commuting is bad now?

With a 12-minute wait for a train, what happen when a Blue Line train breaks down (or is too crowded to board)? Metro has no stated plan -- so prepare for 24 minute wait times, or more .
