Metrorail service cut likely tonight

Airports | Amtrak | Buses | Capital Weather Gang | D.C. snow emergency | Plowing plans | Rails | Snow removal | Live traffic

The transit authority issued this status update, based on conditions at 7 p.m.

Metrorail is still operating at near-normal service on all lines. But the transit authority expects to limit service to underground portions of the system later this evening as weather conditions deteriorate.

All Metrobus lines have moved to snow emergency routes. Metrobus anticipates curtailing service later this evening as road conditions continue to deteriorate.

MetroAccess paratransit service has nearly completed all remaining trips for the day.

There is definitely a Metrobus in front of my apartment right now. He stopped for a red light and has been trying for the last half hour to get moving again. Ice + uphill = not a good combination.

Cars are going sideways too.

Please stay off the roads.

Same here - my corner of Conn Ave had a stuck bus, cars sliding everywhere, a taxi doing a 180. And now people are flying up the street as if it is dry. Amazing.

DCMike1, sounds like you are describing exactly what I just saw. You must be one of my neighbors.
