Transit Riders: Don't Get Stranded This Weekend

It could happen if you plan to ride Metrorail late on Saturday night and don't watch the clocks.

Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday. Metro will spring foward along with everyone else, and it will become 3 a.m., Metrorail's weekend closing time. To avoid missing the last train home, you might set your watch ahead when you leave the rail station on the way to your party.

You've got to be kidding - Metro magically gets to shave an hour of their operating schedule?! Are the notifying riders that this is going to happen?

Dear zizzy,
Don't worry, we will get it back in the fall.

From Dr. Gridlock: We will get it back in the fall. Metrorail stays open till 3 a.m., whenever 3 a.m. occurs.
