Is the metro getting more crowded at Petworth?
One of the great things about taking the metro from Petworth has been that you can always get a seat. Or you used to be able to get a seat. Is it me, or have you noticed that the trains are becoming much more crowded from 8-9 in the morning? I suppose on the one hand it is a good thing to have more riders on the Green line because maybe it will make a case to permanently extend the Yellow line. But on the other hand it was so nice to plop down in a seat and read Express while still in the early morning haze. Do you guys notice a lot more riders on the metro in the morning from Petworth or certainly Columbia Heights?
