According to WMATA, ridership is down 90 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels.
The cuts they’re discussing would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022, and would include service times, as well as nearly two dozen stations.
Trains would run every 30 minutes – or every 15 minutes on the Red Line. In addition, service would end at 9 p.m., rather than midnight.
The Reston Town Center Metro station – which hasn’t even opened yet – is one of 22 stations Metro is considering closing altogether.
Metro bus service – which is seeing ridership at 60 percent of its pre-pandemic levels – would see similar cuts.
