Metro News Release
For immediate release: October 29, 2012
Metro service information for Tuesday, October 30
Due to extreme weather conditions from Hurricane Sandy that are expected to impact the entire Metro service area through the overnight hours, Metro has announced the following for Tuesday, October 30:
- Metrorail and Metrobus service will not resume service Tuesday morning. An announcement on when service may be restored will be made after Metro is able to assess damage and weather conditions in the morning. Metro personnel will need to perform a comprehensive damage assessment, including inspections of track, bridges, aerial structures, stations and facilities. Metrorail service restoration is also contingent on adequate commercial power to support operations and repair of any storm-related damage. For Metrobus, service restoration will vary by route and depend on road conditions.
- MetroAccess service will remain suspended all day Tuesday.
Metro will restore service only when it is safe to do so.
Customers are encouraged to sign up for MetroAlerts for information regarding restoration of service as it is known. To check Metro service status by phone, customers may call (202) 637-7000 or TTY (202) 638-3780.
A scheduled Public Hearing on Tuesday also has been cancelled.
