Metro on Alert Following Weekend Computer Glitch
Computer issues prompted service to be suspended twice over the weekend.
Metro remains on alert Monday morning following a computer problem that caused two system-wide rail service suspensions this weekend, The Washington Post reports.
Service was suspended twice‚—for more than 30 minutes after 2 p.m. Saturday and again between 12:30 and 1 a.m. early Sunday—after the computer system that allows controllers to track trains malfunctioned, according to The Post.
Riders took to Twitter to vent their frustrations about the delays.
Monday morning, the computer system was back up and running as usual, and extra employees were on hand. However, ABC7 reports a train with a brake problem and a disabled train prompted two closures at the Dupont Circle station this morning, causing crowding and delays.
