Outdoor Escalators = Bad Idea

A joint Park Cities PeopleD Magazine investigation, conducted over the course of several years of commuting, has revealed that the escalators at Mockingbird Station are broken all the freaking time. After a long day of producing the world’s greatest community newspaper, nothing is more defeating than having to choose between the elevator (smelly) and the stairs/broken escalator (sweat inducing).

Given that all of the other escalators I encounter regularly are indoors and in good working order, I assume that the problem with the ones at Mockingbird Station is that they are outdoors. Perhaps Dallas’ atmospheric conditions, combined with copious amounts of bird poop, are not conducive to escalator operations?
