There will be no trains between College Park and Greenbelt this weekend.

Metro will be taking a break from most scheduled track work this weekend.

On the Red, Yellow, Blue, and Orange Lines, Metro says service will be normal all through this weekend before Christmas.

That's true also for most of the Green Line. From Branch Avenue to College Park, Green Line trains will operate on a normal weekend schedule as well. The only place there will be work going on this weekend is between College Park and Greenbelt, where shuttle buses will be replacing trains Saturday and Sunday, and Metro says that will take about 15 minutes to get through that stretch.

But for anyone planning to take the B30 bus from Greenbelt to BWI Marshall airport, Metro says to plan on arriving at College Park 30 minutes prior to the scheduled B30 departure time.
