Metrobus Grumble

While posting the last item, a traffic report came on describing a major snafu on route 395 toward the Pentagon. This shouldn't have anything to do with the path between my house and the office, but it does because Metro runs a clever money-grubbing scam with its bus routes. By bypassing the local Metrorail station and sending buses on a long detour to Pentagon station, they magically convert the buses that have been winding their start-and-stop way through the local streets into "express" routes with a 150% "express" fare premium. They haven't found a way to directly benefit from wasting a half-hour of my time every day, unless they derive personal amusement from it.
