On Friday, Metro announced further reductions in service that begin Monday, Arpil 6.

As part of ongoing efforts to limit exposure to the COVID-19 virus, the Metro Pandemic Task Force further reduced rail and bus hours.

New Metro service hours, starting Monday:
Metrorail will close at 9 p.m. each day. Opening is at 5 a.m. Monday to Friday with trains running every 20 minutes (15 minutes on the Red Line). Service begins at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, with trains every 30 minutes (20 minutes on Red Line).

Remember, 19 rail stations are closed. 

Metrobus will also be curtailed, with service will ending at 11 p.m. daily. On Saturday and Sunday, there will only be bus service on 27 routes. Check weekend bus routes before traveling.

All subscription MetroAccess trips are canceled.

The decision to end service earlier reflects a significant drop-off in ridership since Metro began asking riders to limit use of the system to “essential trips only” to enhance safety for employees and individuals who must travel during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Earlier this week, the Mayor of Washington, D.C., Muriel Bowser, joined Maryland Governor Larry Hogan and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam in signing Executive Orders directing their residents to stay at home, except for essential travel.
