Metro’s intentions to decrease inspections on 7000 trains are halted by the regulator.

The investigation is one of three potential safety violations or concerns the commission has raised in just the last week. Metro Board called a sudden executive session on Sunday, citing “safety and security matters”. The 7000 series, Metro’s most advanced and latest model of rail car, was first suspended in October 2021. The 7000 series makes up nearly 60 percent of Metro’s rail car fleet. In late October, both sides reached an agreement allowing Metro unlimited use of its newest 7000-series cars.
