Metro Plans Work Over Presidents’ Day Weekend

WASHINGTON (AP) — Riders will have to wait longer some Metro trains this weekend and into Presidents’ Day.

Metro says beginning Friday night and continuing through Monday, trains on the blue line will operate every 20 minutes. Orange line trains will operate every 10 to 20 minutes.

On the red line, buses will replace trains between Woodley Park and Metro Center. Trains between Shady Grove and Woodley Park will operate every 10 minutes from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and every 15 to 20 minutes at other times. Red line trains between Glenmont and Metro Center will operate every 15 minutes.

The green and yellow lines will have normal weekend service.

On Monday, Presidents’ Day, the system will operate on a Saturday schedule. It will open at 5 a.m. and close at midnight.
