So it sure has been a while since I’ve posted. I was recently in the DC area attending the Spring Internet2 Members Meeting, which was great. The meeting and the hotel were in Crystal City, which is on the VA side of the river, and very convenient to the DC metro stop by the same name. My dad and I went together, and both spent quite a bit of time on the metro. While I find it clean, quite, and efficient, their fare structure still bewilders me. It may be because I’m used to the MTA in NYC and the one-fare-fits-all model they use. Regardless, the DC metro remains in my view one of the most appropriately sized and located metro systems in the country.
