Covid-19 Recovery Efforts
Metrorail stations & entrances reopen
15 Metrorail stations and select entrances at 9 stations previously closed in response to Covid-19 are open with train service.
3 stations on the Orange & Silver lines are open with shuttle bus service.
Metrobus service changes
Metrobus has made changes to service to provide more capacity & frequent service as the region slowly reopens. This means more service on 14 routes but the temporary suspension of 4 routes.
Making the essential possible
Our employees answered the call to keep Metro moving to serve the region through these unprecedented times. Thank you to every one of you for making it possible to provide the region with essential rail and bus service.
Covid-19 protections continue
For the protection of our employees and customers, a face covering is required. This requirement includes inside stations and on-board trains and buses. A face covering includes bandanas, scarves, neck gaiters and more. Also, Metrobus continues rear-door boarding.
Metrorail reconstruction work
Customers should plan for additional travel time and transfers to shuttle buses to reach some destinations.
Platform reconstruction on the Orange Line at Vienna, Dunn Loring and East Falls Church continues. In addition, around-the-clock track work on segments of the Green & Yellow lines.
Recovery & reopening
On May 11, Metro started working on its 3 phase recovery plan. This includes the re-opening of closed stations, increasing the frequencies of Metrobus routes and ramping up Metrorail service ahead of demand.
