Metro cuts some holiday routes
Starting Monday (Columbus Day), Metro plans to implement a new holiday schedule that reduces or eliminates service on some routes in Maryland and Virginia. Metro said the move will better align service with passenger demands.
The changes will be in effect on Veterans Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President's Day, the day after Thanksgiving, the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Metro said that few people usually ride buses on those days.
Bus routes that are eliminated for the holidays are:
-- In Maryland: 87, 88, B27, B29, B31, C11, 13 and W19.
-- In Virginia: 3Y, 9S, 11Y, 15K 15L, 15M, 16L, 16Y, 17G, 17H, 17K 17L, 18E 18F, 18G, 18H 18J, 24T and 28T.
Twenty-six routes in D.C., 12 routes in Virginia, and 1 route in Maryland will operate on an "enhanced Saturday schedule. Here is Metro's complete list of service changes.
