Computer glitch causes Metro service delay

A computer glitch temporarily forced Metro officials to stop train service on all five Metro lines for more than half an hour Saturday afternoon.

Metro officials said that at about 2:10 p.m., issues with the system’s computer system forced them to put the trains on hold. Service was restored on all lines by about 2:50 p.m., but Metro warned that there might be residual delays. The cause of the computer problem is under investigation.
