Transit modified for Veterans Day
[This post has been updated]
Many area transit authorities will have limited service for Veterans Day, as they anticipate a significant drop in ridership as federal workers stay home.
Metrobus will operate on a new modified schedule introduced this past Columbus Day.
In Maryland and Virginia, 27 routes will not operate on Veterans Day, including Maryland routes 87, 88, B27, B29, B31, C11, C13 and W19 and Virginia routes 3Y, 9S, 11Y, 15K 15L, 15M, 16L, 16Y, 17G, 17H, 17K 17L, 18E 18F, 18G, 18H 18J, 24T and 28T. Many other routes will have limited or Saturday service. Here's a link to the complete list of modifications.
A Metro spokeswoman said Metrorail will operate on a Saturday schedule for Veterans Day, although the subway system will be open from 5 a.m. to midnight. Metro says parking will be free at its lots and garages for the holiday.
Virginia Railway Express trains will not operate on Thursday but will resume on Friday. Maryland's MARC trains will operate on a modified schedule; only trains designated with an "S" under the number on the schedule will operate. There will be no Maryland Commuter Bus service.
Here are some additional schedule modifications from around the region:
-- Arlington Transit: ART 41, 42, ART 51, and ART 87 will operate on Saturday schedules. Other routes will not operate.
-- Montgomery County Ride On will operate on a holiday schedule.
-- The Fairfax Connector will operate on a holiday schedule.
-- Some Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission service will operate on a limited basis. Here are complete details.
