Update 9:00 a.m.:
As of Tuesday morning, Metro says it’s running on its “regular weekday schedule,” according to a release, because there are “no weather-related issues to report.”
Metrobus will run under a “moderate snow plan” on Tuesday, due to anticipated accumulations of an inch or more.
The moderate plan means some bus routes won’t operate while others will make detours to avoid “hilly terrain, narrow streets, and other problem areas,” according to the agency. As of 3 p.m. Monday, Metrorail will run on its regular weekday schedule both above and below ground. The transit authority explains in a release that staff will de-ice rails overnight and clear “station platforms, sidewalks, parking lots and bus loops.” MetroAccess, the agency’s service for passengers with disabilities, will provide planned service on Tuesday, but there could be delays.
The last time Metro ran buses under the moderate snow plan was during the week following January’s big blizzard.
