More Rail Service Coming to Metro Beginning Monday, September 11

Per WMATA: More frequent service is coming to Metro beginning Monday, September 11, when the transit agency will roll out its eleventh service increase since last summer. While ridership continues to grow, it remains below pre-pandemic levels, therefore Metro will monitor ridership trends and continue to assess the need for any future service adjustments based on ridership demand.

With ridership trending higher during the morning and evening commuting hours, Metro will boost peak service on the Red, Blue, Silver, Green, and Yellow lines to meet demand and ridership growth as more customers return to the office and other activities. Trains on those lines will run more frequently from approximately 7 a.m. – 9 a.m., and from approximately 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. Exact times of peak service will vary by station.

Orange Line trains will continue operating every 10 minutes all-day, seven days a week, and every 15 minutes after 9:30 p.m. Metro is now running more train service than at any time in its 47-year history.

“Metro is working hard to provide frequent, reliable service to help move our region and grow our economy.” said Metro General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Randy Clarke. “This service increase is another win for our customers and a testament to Metro staff who have worked hard to restore safe, frequent service. We have great service levels available, and we hope that our region and customers use the system, and we see ridership continue to grow.” Service frequencies beginning Monday, September 11:
