Straphangers Rejoice!

Apparently short riders on Washington Metro were getting the shaft. Now they've put in 20 spring loaded handles on a single car to test them out. I would think they would want to put them on more than one car but at least they are starting to think about it. When i was riding BART to Lafayette from Oakland, it was always packed at rush hour in the afternoon. There would always be someone who couldn't quite reach and just had to hope that everyone else would hold them up during acceleration. Maybe BART will be next.

Hey--St. Louis should be entered into the 'race' catagory!
We just expanded our Metro line 40 miles and have plans of a north south connector!
Check it out!!

Is there a site with plans for the North South Connector? St. Louis has been doing a really good job
