After one year of accelerated repairs on Metro’s rail lines, WMATA’s ‘SafeTrack’ plan officially ends on June 25. What did the plan mean for Washingtonians affected by the 16 ‘surges,’ where portions of rail were out of service for extended periods? And what will rail service look like after the plan ends? WAMU’s Martin DiCaro joins Kojo to discuss planned fare hikes and schedule changes that will stay after SafeTrack ends.
