    Nobody wants Metro chasing away patrons with bikes. At the same time, it would be nice if cyclists would actually acknowledge that when there are lots of bikes it can be difficult to get on and off a train. Have enough imaginative enough sympathy to admit that. You guys will (hopefull!) be old someday. Maybe Metro has extra cars sitting around such that it can run longer trains and devote cars to bikes, though perhaps if there are specific predictable times at night it could be done (since fewer trains are running than during the day).

    The Metro App is pretty useful, but it’s critically flawed by it’s lack of next arriving bus info. But I gather that’s still in the works.
