Trains will continue operating every 15-20 minutes on the Red Line and every 30-40 minutes on all other lines. Silver Line service will continue to operate between Wiehle-Reston East and Federal Center SW only. Customers are encouraged, where it makes sense for them, to use Metrobus service as an alternative.
To make service more frequent and reduce crowding at certain times, Metro is working to grow the number of trains available for daily service from 31 trains to 50. That work entails accessing additional 2000, 3000 and 6000-series railcars and ensuring they are safe for service.
Customers are encouraged to use Metro’s trip planning tools for schedule information. Metro’s Trip Planner https://www.wmata.com/schedules/trip-planner/index.cfm is updated with the current schedule, and Metro’s Live Train Map https://gis.wmata.com/metrotrain/index.html provides real-time information on where trains are throughout the system allowing customers to better prepare for their commute. Riders should allow additional travel time as a result of these schedule changes.Information on service and updates will be communicated to customers through MetroAlerts text or email messages, on Twitter @MetrorailInfo and through the Status and Alerts page at wmata.com.
