Metro: Reduced Service Levels to Continue Through November 30

Metro has announced that it would continue to operate at reduced service levels through at least November 30.

According to a service advisory, Metrorail service will operate as follows:

  • Red Line trains run every 12 minutes
  • Green Line and Yellow Line trains run every 20 minutes
  • Blue Line, Orange Line, and Silver Line trains run every 30 minutes
  • Silver Line service has resumed between Wiehle-Reston East and Largo Town Center

Metro also said in the announcement that it will advise the public of any additional service improvements should more trains become available.

WTOP reported this week that while 7000-series trains are being tested on the tracks, there hasn’t been an update given as to when the Metrorail system will return to normal service. “We don’t want to get into giving a time frame because, again, that goes against some of the things we already said — wanting to do this right, wanting to continue to be safe,” Metro spokeswoman Kristie Benson said Monday to WTOP.
