WASHINGTON (AP) — The Metro system says its trains are operating on a Saturday schedule because of Veterans Day.

That means trains begin running at 5 a.m. Monday and stop at midnight. Metrobus is operating on what’s called a Saturday Supplemental schedule.

The federal holiday means Metro officials expect to handle fewer passengers than on a normal weekday.

Crews have been taking advantage of the Veterans Day weekend to do repair work on the Red, Orange and Green rail lines.

That’s caused some single-tracking in some areas.
