Took my Uber 40 minutes to get from Logan Circle to DCA this morning. Almost missed my flight. I understand the reason behind the protestors, but what they’re doing to the traffic and commutes downtown just makes me roll my eyes, that’s not the best way to get sympathy to your cause.

I got a 1pm flight - you think yellow/green line is my best bet? I’m in Shaw.

Take the metro. Tried to Uber there and we could barely get out so had to get dropped off at metro anyway.

Have the protests gotten that bad? I made it from Capitol Hill to Arlington in 15 minutes this morning at 7:30.

I live on H St, caught the train at Union Station around 8:20am, and never saw a thing, zero delays

Took me 25 mins from Union Market to get to 395

Ugh. What time did you leave? My Uber driver either made bad choices or I left the worst possible time
