Am I alone in thinking that all the current members of WMATA's board need to be replaced? In the past 13+ years it seems that the decline of Metro has been a result of the "board" more worried about politics than operating a transit system. Heck the majority of them don't even ride Metro and to top it off they don't even pay for their parking at WMATA HQ!! WMATA needs to have a board who a) actually rides the system, b) has some knowledge of transit operations. The same goes for the controllers in Central; part of thier job should include riding the line at least 2-3 times a week so that they know how the "real" world is.
