On Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 24, Metrorail and Metrobus will operate on a Sunday schedule. Metro will open at 7 a.m. and will run until midnight.

Trains will serve all 97 stations with trains every 10 minutes on the Red Line, every eight minutes on Green Line and every 15 minutes on the Blue, Orange, and Silver Line. Metro says off-peak fares will be in effect all day.
