The Worst D.C. Metro Station, According to TIME

Located right outside of Washington, D.C.

TIME was able to figure out what the top 15 worst stations are in Washington, D.C.'s Metro system. By compiling data from the Metro's incident reports between May 2012 and March 2016, the publication discovered that the longest average wait time can be found at the Vienna Fairfax-GMU station. When it comes to delays, the station had a total of 5,632 minutes of delay during the time frame of the incident reports.

The Metro riders that were most often affected by delays were those on the Red and Orange lines. TIME reported that 63% of all delays in the Metro system were caused by maintenance issues.

In order to alleviate these issues, Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld has fired 20 managers and begun SafeTrack, which calls for a series of shutdowns in the Metro system in order to repair tracks.
