Metrorail To Run Limited Service This Weekend

Scheduled track work will cause delays around the Metro system this weekend, but some planned work is being cancelled because of this week's wet weather.

Metro had been planning to close the Greenbelt station with buses replacing Green Line trains between there and College Park, but the transit agency decided to cancel that plan due to the heavy rainfall earlier this week. So the Greenbelt station will be open this weekend, but because of continued testing of the new 7000-series railcars between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday, trains will arrive and depart Greenbelt only once every 20 to 24 minutes. Service on the rest of the Green line should be normal all weekend.

Normal service is also expected on the Blue and Yellow lines, but there will be a longer than usual wait along the Orange line, with trains running only once every 24 minutes all weekend.

On the Red line, trains will run from end to end only once every 20 minutes all weekend, but extra trains running between Shady Grove and NoMa Gallaudet between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. both days will make the wait along that stretch more like 10 minutes.

This protest was presumably about marijuana decriminalization, but home rule seemed to be the overarching theme.
