For more than a year, the MTA knew Baltimore’s subway tracks violated safety standards before the emergency shutdown last week.
According to the Baltimore Sun, 17 of the Metro’s turns were deemed to be “deteriorated to the point where no train movement is allowed” in a November 2016 evaluation. But the trains continued running for more than a year in anticipation of track replacement scheduled for this summer.
MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn said, “Our riders were never in any danger.”
