Metro's Van Dorn Street station manager met the day's last scheduled Blue Line train at 12:32 a.m. Friday. He escorted the riders out of the station, then locked up and headed home. The only problem was that the last train for the night hadn't actually arrived yet.

So just after 1 a.m., about eight passengers found themselves trapped inside the station in Alexandria for 30 minutes as they waited for Metro Transit Police to unlock the exit, according to accounts from two of those stranded.
Well, I feel better about paying that $77 to park at Ballston Mall and getting home in 30 min instead of wasting my money on the Metro and being home in an hour.
