Local reporter covering the D.C. Metro, Uber and Lyft, and transit-oriented tech start-ups Education: University of Nebraska at Lincoln
Faiz Siddiqui is a reporter with The Washington Post's transportation team. For the past two years, he has covered all things Metro and D.C. transportation, including the year-long SafeTrack program, the system's chronic safety and reliability issues, and regional and federal officials' push for governance and finance reforms at the agency. He has also covered Uber, Amtrak and the launches of countless local tech start-ups. He has previously written stories for the Boston Globe and NPR.
The men were charged with first-degree felony fraud for allegedly collecting wages from both Amtrak and Metro by “claiming to be at one employer while physically reporting to the other,” Metro’s Office of Inspector General said Tuesday.
