Commissioner Lini Interviewed in the Washington Post

"Lini said that in opting for a shutdown instead of single-tracking, Metro failed to consider the needs of residents. He noted that the surge is happening during the last month of the school year, when it’s vital that children arrive at school on time. A large percentage of the neighborhood’s students rely on Metro to get to school, he said."
