Metrorail normal, buses limited
Metrorail plans to open this morning at its normal 5 a.m. operating time. Metrobuses will begin the day on snow emergency routes (no side streets), but officials say full operations will return to normal as soon as the street conditions make it possible. Metro says MetroAccess will begin operating at 10 a.m.
Arlington's ART buses will operate with limited service.
The Fairfax Connector plans to operate on a Saturday schedule between 10 a.m. and midnight. But we've heard from readers that neither its route 151 nor its route 152, which ferry people to Huntington Metro and back, appeared at the stops on Mary Baldwin Drive.
The Maryland Transit Administration said that they expect major roads to be treated overnight. However, parking lots still need to be plowed and bus drivers may be unable to report to work.
The MTA also canceled MARC train service on the Brunswick and Camden Lines. The agency said Penn Line trains would operate on a modified holiday schedule. The cancellations are due to a deficit in equipment to operate the trains. Trains are likely out of position.
The Brunswick Line carries passengers between Washington and points north and west, including Frederick and Martinsburg, W.Va. The Camden Line connects Washington and Baltimore, and the Penn Line runs from Washington through northeastern Maryland via Baltimore.
Virginia Railway Express plans to operate on an "S" schedule today. Only those trains with an "S" above them on the schedule will operate.
Ride On bus service in Montgomery County will resume at 10 a.m. Thursday and operate on a Saturday schedule.
The D.C. Circulator expects to begin service at 7 a.m. but probably with fewer buses and drivers.
