Presidents’ Day transit, transportation changes

February 14, 2013

Presidents’ Day is Monday, a federal holiday, which means that many transit systems will run limited schedules or no service at all. Here’s your guide to getting around on Monday.

Metro

Metrorail will operate on a Saturday schedule, opening at 5 a.m. and closing at midnight. Metrobus will operate on a Saturday supplemental schedule; check the timetables to see if your route is running. MetroAccess will run the same hours as bus and rail, but subscription trips are canceled.

In addition, Metro has major work planned that will impact four of the five rail lines this weekend. The biggest impact will be felt on the Orange and Blue lines, where work near Stadium-Armory will close a combined seven stations.

Blue Line: Trains will only run as far east as Stadium-Armory, with buses replacing trains beyond that point. The Benning Road, Capitol Heights, Addison Road, Morgan Boulevard and Largo Town Center stations will be closed. Some buses will only stop at Stadium-Armory, Addison Road and Largo Town Center, while others will go to all of the closed stations. (This will last from 10 p.m. Friday until the system closes on Monday night.)

Orange Line: The Minnesota Avenue and Deanwood stations on the Orange Line will be shuttered. Buses will run between the Stadium-Armory and Cheverly stops. (This will last from 10 p.m. Friday until the system closes on Monday night.)

Red Line: Trains will single-track between Rhode Island Avenue and Takoma. (This will last from 10 p.m. Friday until the system closes on Monday night.)

Green Line: Buses will replace trains between Greenbelt and College Park. (This is just for Saturday.)

Meanwhile, work continues the following weekend, when Metro plans to close the Vienna, Dunn Loring, West Falls Church and East Falls Church stations on the Orange Line to allow for work related to the Silver Line.
