Metro blamed its own equipment. Its largest union, however, said private contractors hired by the agency were responsible.

Metro said an equipment problem caused weekend maintenance to take longer than expected, resulting in single-tracking and fewer trains on part of the line.

"Transit assaults are at an epidemic level and Metro’s lazy response has put its employees and the riding public at risk,” Metro's largest union said in a statement.

Incident is impacting Metro’s Orange, Blue and Silver lines, officials said.

Police say they are prepared for the large number of events and any potential counter protests.
