It will have taken one week, but on Friday Metro’s transit services will return to “normal,” according to the agency.
Following two feet of snow and a days-long dig-out across the region, Metrorail will go back to “regular rush hour frequencies” on all lines starting tomorrow morning. Still, “most trains will operate with six cars due to reduced railcar availability following the blizzard,” the agency notes. “As a result, trains may be more crowded than usual.”
As Metro pointed out yesterday, trains are typically emptier outside of 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, the agency reports that as of 3:30 p.m. today, 98 percent of its more than 300 bus routes have resumed normal service: Only six routes still have detours. But be warned: “Some buses may experience delays or isolated, temporary detours due to local road conditions and post-blizzard traffic.”
