jdland #WMATA focus groups like adding #Nats Park (or the Curly W) to Navy Yard, but not ”Capitol Riverfront”: http://bit.ly/roG1G7 ( @ggwash)

perkinsms @metroopensdoors better have more hand holds than that. I can see places where I wouldn't be able to reach, and I'm not short.

kytja America may be getting fatter but #WMATA’s seats won’t be getting wider in mock-ups of new rail cars.

perkinsms @atuss I'd rather have an “uplifting experience” when I get to an escalator.

in response to >> atuss #Metro staff says when these new trains pull into stations, they want riders to have an “uplifting experience” @wtop

 FixWMATA Clarification: Station names aren't a PROBLEM, but now is an OPPORTUNITY to change it if it's wanted. #wmata

 dstessel For reporters with me: “Masamichi Udagawa”

WMATA’s chief spokesman clarifies how to spell the name of the owner of Antenna Design.

 candibfly RT unsuckdcmetro #wmata I don't care what the station is called, just get me there without your usual inconveniences.

 No_Brand_Hero RT @FixWMATA Just replace station names with footnote numbers that have to be looked up on #wmata website Then you can list EVERYTHING nearby.

 unsuckdcmetro How do station names rank among Metro's problems? #wmata
