WMATA says hundreds of thousands of commuters are affected by the 16-day shutdown of portions of the Orange, Blue and Silver lines that began Saturday. Officials urged commuters to telework or find alternative transportation. But for those who had no choice but to ride the rails? They were told by Metro spokesman Dan Stessel: “Expect crowding. Expect it to be hot. Expect it to be frustrating. It’s not going to be a pleasant experience.” We check in on how the Monday morning commute went during Metro’s first major SafeTrack shutdown, and what it says about how the city will get around during the 13 other maintenance surges that are still yet to come.
