Metro Schedule For MLK Day
Metrorail system opens at 5 a.m. today and closes at 2 o'clock Tuesday morning. Those are extra hours to accommodate party-goers tonight.
Since it's a holiday, off-peak fares will be charged and parking at Metrorail facilities will be free. Just don't park overnight, because after the system shuts, cars could be towed as Metro rushes to prepare for the Inauguration Day train service that starts at 4 a.m.
Throughout today, Metro will operate a combination of six- and eight-car trains. If crowds warrant, Metro says, it will put extra trains in service.
After midnight, all Red Line trains will operate 15 minutes apart, and all Blue, Orange, Yellow and Green Line trains will operate 20 minutes apart.
The Judiciary Square Station's F Street NW entrance will close at 7 p.m., out of security concerns involving a nearby event. The 4th Street NW entrance will be open.
Automobiles will not be permitted to enter Metro parking facilities after 11 o'clock tonight. Vehicles parked at Metro lots must leave by 2 a.m. or by the time the station closes, soon after 2 a.m. or risk being ticketed and towed. The lots and garages will reopen at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Metrobus and MetroAccess will operate on regular weekday schedules. Some bus and MetroAccess routes in downtown Washington may experience delays or detours because of traffic conditions.
