A Prayer for the Metro- A petition is circulating around the D.C. Metro area asking Pope Francis to bless the Metro. The transit system has been struggling with issues all year, including a derailment earlier this summer. []

More Delays for Metro?- Speed restrictions on the Blue, Orange and Silver Lines may cause delays for Reston commuters. These delays will coincide with the Pope’s arrival in D.C., which may cause Metro backups due to the amount of people entering the District to see the head of the Catholic Church. [Twitter]
