The D.C. Metro is showing signs of improvement—for a short period at least!
The Metro announced that the Red Line will be running every 10 minutes the weekend of Oct. 8 through Oct. 10. The previous weekend (Sept. 30-Oct. 3) the Red Line only ran every 15 minutes.
The increase in frequency is to reflect travel needs for the upcoming holiday weekend.
“Between Saturday, Oct. 8 through Monday, October 10, trains will operate normal service frequencies on all lines. Metrorail will open at 7 a.m. and close at 1 a.m. on Saturday and midnight Sunday,” according to the Metro. “In observance of Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day, Monday, Oct. 10, Metrorail will operate on a Saturday holiday schedule, opening at 5 a.m. and closing at midnight.”
The Blue, Silver, and Orange Lines will remain running every 15 minutes, while the Green Line runs every 8 minutes. The Yellow Line remains out of service due to “major construction,” but shuttle buses are available at those metro stations.
