Metro service during the Federal Government shutdown

Metro is not a federal entity and will remain open during any government shutdown.  Trains and buses are operating on regular schedules. The system will open and close at regular times.

Metro is making adjustments to "right size" capacity on the rail system due to lower ridership during the shutdown.  Until further notice, all trains will operate with six cars, rather than eight cars.  

If you have any questions about Metro service, please call (202) 637-7000.
