Time is running out to get in that last ride on either one of these cars if that's important to you.Wow! That's much earlier than I would of expected. Was planning to still be able to ride a 1k or 4k car into September or October.
Seems the 7k's are quickly becoming the workhorses of the fleet. Just hope WMATA isn't pushing the 7k's too hard in effort to scrap the older cars faster.
