D.C. LAYS DOWN THE LAW ON SUBWAY CRIME

In the Nation's capital, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) thrives on pleasing the mass transit customer. Metro serves the District of Columbia, Maryland and norhtern Virginia with a rail portion consisting of 72 stattions on 90 miles of track. Punctual service, quiet trains and high-tech fare cards are enhancements that make a trip through a Metro turnstile a turn-on for commuters. But for all its user-friendliness, Metro is downright inhospitable to criminals. Station design plus intensive surveillance have made Washington's subways safer than its streets.
