Are You Ready for the Silver Line?

A sneak peek at the Twitter Feed of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority


Jul 26 12:00 PM
The #silverline is open for business! Come on out for the ride of your life!
Jul 26 12:08 PM
We're experiencing unusually high popularity, and apologize for any temporary delays around Rosslyn.
Jul 26 12:14 PM
We're aware of the broken escalators at Spring Hill and are working hard to get them fixed. Please use the elevator.
Jul 26 12:21 PM
To accommodate this unexpected surge in #silverline popularity, we're temporarily increasing Blue Line wait times to 35 minutes. #rushplusplus
Jul 26 12:25 PM
@saynotosilverline Gray and Silver are the same in web colors #cccccc #notfalseadvertising #notthegrayline
Jul 26 12:27 PM
Oops! The new #silverline SmarTrip cards are adding funds, not deducting them. Please trade yours in to a station manager at your next stop.
Jul 26 12:32 PM
We're aware that some cars do not yet have doors, and have added this to Bechtel's honey-do list. Please move to the center of the train.
Jul 26 12:45 PM
@DCSenatorAide Actually the new restrooms are just for the grand opening. We'll lock them up tomorrow. #socleanforareason
Jul 26 12:49 PM
@wmata Great rollout of the #silverline! Smooth trip all the way to Largo Town Center. Beautiful work! Kudos to your boss!
Jul 26 12:56 PM
Elevator broken in Spring Hill. For handicap access, please transfer to Vienna then use MetroAccess. Allow 4 hours.

@UNCChick Greensboro refers to the street in Tyson's, not the city. We're sorry that you expected differently.
Jul 26 1:08 PM
To accommodate this unexpected surge in #silverline popularity, we're temporarily increasing Blue Line wait times by 45 minutes. #rushplusplusplus
Jul 26 1:09 PM
@HyblaValleyIsNotAlexandria Cumulative. So total wait time is 80 minutes. Just for today though!
Jul 26 1:25 PM
To show that we still care about our Blue Line customers, we're increasing your service by 800%! #momentum
Jul 26 1:27 PM
@unsuckdcmetro Instead of 1 eight-car train every 80 minutes we'll send 1 one-car train every 10 minutes.
Jul 26 1:28 PM
@HyblaValleyIsNotAlexandria The math is sound.
Jul 26 1:34 PM
@wmata Return trip was very fast. #silverline should be a coaster at Cedar Point!!
Jul 26 1:44 PM
Escalators in McLean temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience. #ripMitch
Jul 26 2:18 PM
@OldTownFloodGod Sorry, but the #silverline won't go to Dulles Airport for 8 more years. You can take the shuttle bus from Wiehle.
Jul 26 2:30 PM
To accommodate this unexpected surge in #silverline popularity, we're permanently ending the VA Blue Line at Arlington Cemetery.
Jul 26 2:32 PM
@BarCrawls4Yolo Arlington Cemetery may be dull today, but a terminus there will be a catalyst for development and smart growth. #thenextclarendon
Jul 26 2:34 PM
@wmata What a smart, creative solution to capacity and growth concerns! Glad that you guys always listen to your riders!
Jul 26 2:45 PM
@OldTownFloodGod Sorry you missed your flight.
Jul 26 3:00 PM
It's official. The #silverline is a hit!
