Metro sets its Christmas schedule

Metro's buses and trains will operate on a Sunday schedule on Friday, Christmas Day.

Rail stations will open at 7 a.m. and close at midnight, and trains will operate with six cars. Metro officials said few people ride the rails on Christmas compared to a normal day. Last year about 71,000 people took trips compared to the average weekday ridership of 750,000, according to Metro.

MetroAccess will operate normally on Christmas, the agency said.

On Christmas Eve, Metro will run its regular schedule, opening at 5 a.m. and closing at midnight. The agency will run all six-car trains. Metrobus will operate on a weekday schedule, and MetroAccess will operate normally.

Any idea why Metro has removed 8 car trains from the Orange Crush and given them to the Blue Line?
