Trains will be running less frequently than normal this coming weekend for scheduled track work.

As you make plans for ringing in the new year, you may want to note changes to the city's public transportation schedule.

If you're going out for New Year's Eve, Metro stations will stay open until 2 a.m.

Tomorrow, New Year's Day, trains and buses will open at 7 a.m. and close at midnight, operating on a weekend schedule.

Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of Jan. 3 through 5. Trains on the Blue, Orange, Yellow and Green Lines will operate every 20 minutes.

Red Line trains will run every 15 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont, with additional trains providing service from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. between Friendship Heights and Silver Spring.
