Washington, D.C., is home to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA), or Metro. A system of five subway lines, numerous bus routes, and transfer stations, Metro is the most loved and reviled transit system in the area. Known as often for its accidents, breakdowns, overcrowding, and stupid riders (read: clueless tourists) as it is for its ability to transport hundreds of thousands of commuters every day, Metro is also under utilized as evidenced by gridlocks on the highways, freeways, and byways in the larger Washington metropolitan area.
