Metro to limit Metrobus service Friday due to winter weather conditions

 On Friday, Jan. 19, Metrobus is operating on a Moderate Snow Plan. 

Under the Moderate plan, service will be suspended on some routes and buses detour around roads prone to hazardous conditions, including many neighborhood streets. 

Customers are advised to travel only if necessary, as snow and ice may create dangerous conditions, causing delays and increased wait times. If snow is blocking the curb, customers are advised to wait on the sidewalk instead of the street until the bus arrives. 

Metro is deploying resources throughout the system and across the region to monitor road conditions and keep parking lots, walkways, and stations clear of snow. Customers should build in additional travel time and use caution on platforms, escalators, parking lots, and other areas that may be slippery.  

Metrorail is running regular service, though service may change based on weather conditions and staffing availability. 

MetroAccess is running regular service, but customers are encouraged to travel only if necessary. Some trips may experience delays due to road conditions. If door-to-door service is not possible, curb-to-curb service will be provided instead. 

Metro will reevaluate conditions and service levels throughout the day on Friday and make adjustments where necessary. 

Customers are encouraged to sign up for MetroAlerts text and email messages to receive the latest service updates. You can also visit the Status and Alerts page and check Metro's social media channels @wmata @MetrorailInfo and @Metrobusinfo.
