FixWMATA @FixWMATA🔁In general ALL mass transit in America needs an age of enlightenment. This has to be a change at the top (political) twitter.com forced by the bottom (riders). Each city has a laundry list of issues, some longer lists than others. doesn't stand alone.

Steve Burns @StvBurns🔁A brilliantly reported story here, but one with which many Washingtonians are already familiar. Bad spending practice twitter.com s, fascination with new projects instead of maintenance, and denial about the real problems all plagued as well.
Brian, "ridership death spiral" broken record @HeadwaysMatter🔁Also important: rooting out transit cronyism&corruption, accountability, functioning IG. "public officials who took 1 twitter.com 00s of thousands in political contributions from unions & contractors pressured authority into signing agreements that obligated authority to pay far more"
