The Metrorail Sprint Board

Maybe I just noticed this, but isn’t that train time sign handy?

Looking at it as I entered the Dupont Circle Station, I knew exactly how many minutes I had left to make it to the track.

For those in a rush, or quick on their toes, you can just make an “Arriving” train, but you’ll need to push past any slow-pokes.

Be quicker – insert your favorite movie-based escalator dash scene now!

    That is handy — now I know whether I have time to reload my farecard before I head down.

    Wouldn’t it be even more handier if it were at street-level so you know whether to make a mad dash down the escalator from the street? (think Metro deemed that to be dangerous to have)

    Maybe this should be called a “dash” board…
