  1. I love trains and it was nice to ride new clean trains to places at the beginning. It is no longer safe to ride the Metro trains any more. Besides, the trains are filthy. Like the sheriff said that the metro trains have become the mobile homeless camp.For many years,Metro officials have hardly done anything to improve the situation. So things just get worse and worse. If you care, may I suggest the following?
    1. You are too naive thinking everyone will pay to get on the train. Please set up an obstacle at each station making sure people don’t get on the trains without paying first.
    2. Like what the deputy sheriffs used to do in the past, get on the trains to check the tickets.If found the passengers don’t pay, they can make it up on the train plus fines. Otherwise, they should be asked to leave. No leniency allowed.The presence of the sheriffs will deter some bad behaviors,too. Please don’t try to replace sheriffs with social workers. That won’t work. believe me!
    3. I have seen wonderful sheriffs who did an excellent jobs keeping very close eyes on people and the surrounding situations. I have also seen deputy sheriffs especially the younger ones who stay together and chat. This is especially true at the Union Stations where 6 of them did nothing but chatting!
    4. Do not allow eating or drinking or dirty feet on the chair. Loud speaker won’t do anything except annoying.
    5. The trains should be sanitized at least once every other day.
    6. The emergency button should always work and the driver should stop the train and notify the sheriff immediately upon receiving the notice from the customers. There should also be an emergency number to call if the button doesn’t work.
    7. There should be restrooms at each station. Right now, the only place that has restrooms is at the Union Station.
    I have seen people do their business at other stations. There’s definite a need for this.What happens if people are sick and have to go? I can’t believe those who design the stations and those who are on the top level of Metro system did not think through.Certainly very disappointing!
    8. Another issue that was not thought through by those involved was the parking space. At the peak, there were times we can’t find parking space. When I call the Metro office, I was told to park at other station where it was easier to find one. What? I was even suggested to ride a bike or use the skate board!!!! I can’t believe what I heard. What is in this guy’s mind and how he got to the high ranking position in the Metro train system. Later on, the fee was imposed to deter people from parking and at the same time, collect money for the Metro. For people who have to leave the car at the station, so they can go away for a few days, it is worrisome that there is no security system to protect the cars. Videos system is not the answer. Each parking lot should have a security gate and it will be patrolled!!
