In the end though, all the angst over parking would disappear if there where more dependable transit.

Yes. How did I not mention that?

I'd be ecstatic to get rid of my car, but Metro's basically unusable unless using it for a 9-5 commute.

Did you see Metro's track work schedule this past weekend? The entire system was basically unusable:

  • No Red Line between Fort Totten & Glenmont (so, no service to Silver Spring). 10-15 minute headways at remaining stations.
  • No Green Line between Archives, Waterfront, or L'Enfant (so, no direct connection from EOTR to downtown, and no transfers at L'Enfant). 10-15 minute headways at remaining stations. Early closing.
  • The Yellow Line basically didn't run at all. No service over 14th St Bridge. Downtown only had Green Line service; Weird "Yellow" trains ran from Huntington to Eastern Market. 24 minute headways. Early closing.
  • Blue Line was single-tracking. 24-minute headways, plus that weird Huntington->Eastern Market shuttle.
  • Orange Line was single-tracking in two sections. 24-minute headways.

Now, tell me how this is supposed to discourage driving.
