The following train is holding at the station now.

8 a.m. Update: Metro says the delays have been cleared. All lines are reporting that trains are on time.

Original post: Metro reports there was a sick customer on a train at King Street Station. The situation has been resolved but delays continue to Largo Town Center and Mount Vernon Square stations.

And if you're heading out on Metro, check for the latest escalator and elevator outages here. As usual, about 10 percent of the escalators in the system are out of service
