Metro swaps out carpets for slip-resistant floors
Tired of carpeting on Metro during your commute? Soon you will see much less of it. WMATA is installing new slip-resistant flooring in some of its railcars. Today they shared some pictures of installing this so-called "resilient flooring."
The new flooring is easier and cheaper to maintain than the old carpets, which had to be replaced every 5 years. The new flooring should last at least 25 years.
