Now, for all its problems, the metro isn't half-bad during the day. I get home, to school, and work alright. Nonetheless, taking the metro at night is the worst mental torture ever conceived. The train I take is supposed to arrive at government center a few minutes before 9pm, but for half of the days of the week it arrives between an hour and almost two hours late. Now, I've been riding the metro for some time and it has never been that late before. I can understand the train arriving super late once in a while, especially at night, but it seems to be a common trend now. Even worse, the power constantly goes on and off forcing the train to stop for as long as five minutes. I've gotten used to it now, but I'm still left wondering, has the county made cutbacks on the metrorail? Are they neglecting maintenance? Or has this always happened but I just have never noticed it?
