Morning Commute Likely to Be Disrupted

The transit authority says it's still working out the details and expects to have more later this evening, but there probably will be a bus bridge on the Red Line between Silver Spring and Rhode Island Avenue, the same thing commuters experienced this evening.

MARC still hasn't made a final decision about Brunswick Line service, but there's a good chance that the trains will be canceled and commuters will have to find their own alternative.

Metro, you had a collision which has shut down the East Side of the Red Line! Be honest in your emails and save people the hassle of attempting to get home with only 25% of the story!!!

John Catoe must go!

Will Amtrak northbound service from Union Station be affected tomorrow?

From MARC:

"Brunswick: Due to the WASH METRO accident, the Brunswick Line is not scheduled, at this time, for service Tuesday morning, 23 June 2009."

Re: Amtrak

The Capitol Limited out to Pittsburgh and Chicago uses that stretch of tracks next to the Red Line, so it might have a problem. But everything north to Philly, NY, etc. (that goes through New Carrollton) shouldn't be affected. They're running ok tonight, and the Marc Penn line is ok, too.
