After Washington DC’s Metro transit service announced an emergency 24-hour shutdown of the rail service for safety reasons, the half-million people who depend on Metro for their transportation needs everyday scrambled for alternatives. Among those alternatives: impromptu group rides into and out of DC organized under the hashtag #wmatabikepool.
it's official #wmatabikepool is a thing…lots of meetups being planned right now. Are you planning on a little early #biketoworkday ?
