Metrorail Service & Derailment Investigation Update

by MCS Staff

Per Metro:

As we continue to address the needs of our customers impacted by current service delays, Metro appreciate the public’s understanding of the need to put safety first.

While Metro aims to provide service consistent with the announced basic service plan through the rest of the week, customers should anticipate trains every 15-20 minutes on the Red Line and every 30-40 minutes on all other lines to account for any unplanned disruptions. Silver Line trains will operate between Wiehle-Reston East and Federal Center SW only. There is currently no capacity to fill unforeseen gaps, which will result in longer wait times. Crews are working as quickly as possible to put more trains into service.

Due to the unplanned service disruptions this week, train times on Metro’s trip planner may not reflect the latest service schedule. Customers are encouraged to use the live train map to see the locations of trains on each line. In-station next train signs (Passenger Information Displays)are providing accurate train arrival estimates.

As Metro continues to work closely with the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission and NTSB and more information develops, we will update the public about service.

More information on actions taken, and FAQ, available in the last update.
