SOUNDBITE (English) Ebony Siggers, commuter: "My commute today--I ride the OmniLink in from Dale City to the State Department, however, the bus was completely empty today, there were seats available and that's odd, because the bus is always packed."3.

SOUNDBITE (English) David Black, commuter: "It was definitely less--far fewer people on the train and they're even considering to convert the train schedule to an emergency snow schedule so they'll have fewer trains running potentially."7. Mid of commuters entering and exiting L'Enfant station8. Mid of the Washington Post and Washington Times paper dispensers9. SOUNDBITE (English) Daniel Goldsmith, Federal employee: "We all have jobs to do and so I'm here doing my job, I'm one of the few who have been allowed to continue to work during this constrained state of operations. However, our elected officials have a responsibility to ensure that this government operates as it should without the constraints that are currently imposed upon it. It's just not fair to us as federal employees and it's certainly not fair to me as a tax payer."10. Wide of Federal Building11. Wide of Capitol building12.

Mid of employee entering buildingSTORYLINE:The U.S. Government partial shutdown closed iconic national parks and monuments and forced nearly a third of the federal workforce _ 800,000 employees _ off the job. People classified as essential employees continued to work, but the number of federal commuters on Tuesday morning were visibly reduced.With federal services in limbo across the country, lawmakers from both parties suggested the impasse could last for weeks and encompass a potentially more dangerous fight over the country's borrowing limit. Funding for much of the government was cut off after a Republican effort to thwart Obama's health care law stalled a short-term, normally routine spending bill. Republicans pivoted to a strategy to try to reopen the government piecemeal but were unable to immediately advance the idea in the House of Representatives.
