Metro today – Regular schedule; check advisories here – lots of trip cancellations this week.

Reminder, NO WATER TAXI this weekend – April 13-14 – to prepare for the spring/summer season (which adds Friday/Saturday later-in-the-evening sailings starting Friday, April 19). The shuttle buses WILL run, though, Metro says.

    Just wanted to give a shout-out to the road crews; I’ve been driving over that 21st SW stretch making comparisons to “Moon Patrol” for the past while but it was a joy to drive past in the coned-off lane yesterday and see that smooth stretch being laid down.  I’ve been super impressed with the response times to the “Find It, Fix It” app as well, and although I know jokes about the city and the DOT etc. are common, it’s really lovely to see the needed work getting done.  Thank you, crew!

Sorry, comment time is over.
