On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Public transit in the nation’s capital is in a perilous state. Last month, Metro’s leadership took the unprecedented step of shutting down rail service for an entire day to conduct safety checks. Meanwhile, recent congressional hearings sparked heated debates over funding and customer service. Now, Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld is in studio with Kojo and WAMU 88.5’s Martin DiCaro to talk about safety, security, reliability and the way forward for a system long besieged by challenges.
