Metro Service resumes Monday on limited basis; rides are free for the day

- (AP) - Washington's Metro is resuming limited rail and bus service, and the rides are free for the day.

Rail service re-opened at 7 a.m. Monday with limited underground service on the red, orange and green lines. Metro said that as of 11 a.m. it intended to restore some above ground service on segments of the red, orange and green lines. That was to include all but one station in the District of Columbia.

On Monday afternoon, Metro announced above-ground service would be restored to Reagan National Airport between Largo Town Center and Huntington on the Blue Line and between Mt. Vernon Square and Huntington on the Yellow Line beginning at 3:00 p.m. Customers should be advised that Braddock Road Station is closed.

Metro says trains are running every 20 to 25 minutes and that may be upgraded as conditions allow. Trains will run until midnight.

Bus service was scheduled to start at noon and run until 5 p.m. Monday on some two dozen routes.

Both rail and bus service did not operate Saturday


The Metrorail system is open until midnight with limited service on the Red, Orange and Green lines as follows:

Orange Line: Ballston to New Carrollton only
Red Line: Medical Center to Glenmont only
Green Line: Fort Totten to Branch Av only
Service on the Silver, Blue and Yellow lines will remain suspended. Stations not listed above will remain closed.
