SafeTrack Surge #11 begins Monday

- The next surge of SafeTrack, which will have a major impact on Orange and Silver Line riders, has begun.

Surge #11, which began on Monday, November 27 and will end on Wednesday, December 21, will call for Orange and Silver Line trains to continuously single track between West Falls Church and East Falls Church. 

On weekdays: 

  • Orange Line trains will run every 20 minutes between Vienna and New Carrollton.
  • Silver Line trains will run every 20 minutes between Wiehle-Reston East and Largo Town Center
  • Expect crowding on all Orange/Silver line trains.
  • Expect crowding on Blue Line trains between Rosslyn and Stadium-Armory due to reduced capacity on Orange/Silver lines

During weekends, train frequencies may change to coordinate with other track work on the Metrorail system. Weekend service information can be found in the Alerts & Advisories section of WMATA's website.
