NEW ESCALATORS AMONG WMATA IMPROVEMENTS

Eighty new and 153 refurbished escalators since 2011 are among improvements at the Washington Area Metropolitan Transit Authority (WMATA) that have led to greater customer satisfaction, Mass Transit reports. Along with new railcars, adjusted schedules and infrastructure upgrades, WMATA is being aggressive in replacing and rehabilitating escalators, resulting in an average escalator age of 10-1/2 years, the lowest in decades. WMATA, the largest operator of escalators in the Western Hemisphere, completed its most recent project, two new units at the U Street Station (ELENET 694), weeks ahead of schedule earlier this month.
