Capitol South Metro Station's Escalators

The Metro System has more escalators than any other transit system in North America. Three of them can be found at the Capitol South Station. Although the Metro System is trying to catch up on escalator maintenance, out-of-service escalators are the norm in many stations.

Unlike indoor mall or airport escalators, the escalators at Capitol South Station have no covering/canopy and face extreme temperatures that can cause breakdowns. Not only rain can cause electrical failures, but it can also make the escalators slippery. The metro station does have one set of cement steps. If you all 3 escalators are broken, 351 steps will take you to the top.
