Yesterday morning I went to Alexandria. I got off the Green Line train at Mt Vernon Sq and 40 seconds later I was getting on a Yellow Line train. I mention this rather ordinary occurrence because once again I stood at Linthicum in the 25-minute wait the MTA seems to think is a reasonable schedule.
And yes I know the Metro runs much more frequently than the Light Rail, but honestly it would be simple to schedule a connection at Linthicum instead of a miss. All it would take is a minute change to the trains in both directions, and a lot of people's lives would be a lot simpler.
