Metrobus resumes service to most routes, Metrorail and MetroAccess operating normal service

Metrobus has resumed service to most routes under a light snow service plan, effective immediately. Buses are operating on 181 of Metro’s 183 routes with some delays and detours still possible in areas where road conditions remain impassable such as hills, curves or narrow streets. The remaining routes will be restored and detours will be lifted on a route-by-route basis throughout the day as they become safe for bus operations. Customers may view the light snow service plan for a list of possible detours by route.

Red Line shuttle buses between Shady Grove, Rockville, and Twinbrook stations for the Rockville Canopy Replacement Project are operating as scheduled.

Metrorail service is operating regularly scheduled weekday service on all lines. MetroAccess paratransit service is providing normal service, with door-to-door service provided as conditions allow. If sidewalks and walkways are inaccessible, curb-to-curb service will be provided as an alternative.

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing through the night with the potential for refreeze. Additional delays, detours or service may be temporarily suspended on isolated routes as necessary if road conditions become hazardous. Customers are encouraged to use caution due to possible ice and slippery conditions on roads, sidewalks and parking lots.
