Covid-19 Recovery Efforts
Enhanced cleaning of trains, buses and stations
Protocols Metro started at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic continue as the region reopens
Return to work survey
We're getting ready to restore more service as the region gradually reopens and more employees return to Metro. Help us by taking this quick survey to share information that will be the basis for planning transit service that meets your needs in the months ahead.
Recovery & reopening
Metro has a 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.
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.
Metrorail stations & entrances reopen
Fifteen stations and select entrances at 9 stations previously closed in response to Covid-19 are open with train service. Three stations on the Orange & Silver lines are open with shuttle bus service.
Metrobus service changes
Service changes focused on providing more capacity & frequent service as the region slowly reopens. More service on 14 routes but the temporary suspension of 4 routes.
Face coverings required
For the protection of our employees and customers, a face covering is required in stations and on-board trains and buses. A face covering includes bandanas, scarves, neck gaiters and more.
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 continues at 9 stations west of Ballston on the Orange & Silver lines, plus track work on segments of the Green & Yellow lines.
