Glad you think that...I live here and don't believe it's even close to the tops. It has good things, but plenty of bad things...and yes, every system does.

I think it has gone way down hill in the last decade.

Agreed. Crime on the Metro was a non issue then, but it certainly is now. The VA stations are fine, though.

Yes, replying to the initial question - safety on Metro isn't completely flawless, but should be perfectly fine in Virginia stations, especially the airport to Pentagon city. You don't need to worry about crime like in New York on the trains...

But in response to the other question, the security comes at a price, and it's charged at Peak rates, oh yeah, and Peak-Of-The-Peak too...
