Any word on if Ride-On will restore any bus service today?

Also, I'm confused by the listing for the Q2, Q4. Is that bus only running between Silver Spring and Wheaton? Or is it running all the way to Shady Grove? I don't know why it would say bypassing Montgomery College if it wasn't running to Shady Grove (because then it wouldn't have to bypass it), but it's not clear from this post.

When do you expect Ride-On to make an announcement about bus service tomorrow?

Montgomery County's Ride On bus service will be operating using the "S" Service Plan on Friday.

UMDTerpsgirl,

Even if Metro announces that a route is running, it may not adhere to its normal plan, depending on road conditions along the route.

Any idea of when the D6 will be operating? Or when buses will approach something like normal service? Friday? or will they wait until Monday?

How do you reconcile the info in this article with the press release issued by Metro at 7:04 pm on Feb 11 (http://www.wmata.com/about_metro/news/PressReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=4309)? Note that only 4 bus lines will be operating in Virginia tomorrow, not the 18 routes identified above. Please provide an update or pull this web article.
