Here’s what you need to know:

Metrorail has significantly cut back service as of 11 a.m. with trains only running every 12-15 minutes.

Metrobus switched to a severe snow plan. That means buses will only be operating on major roads. Read more about the impacted routes on WMATA’s website.

MetroAccess is no longer taking “outbound” trips, meaning it will only take people who are already out back home.

All MARC train service is suspended for Wednesday.

Maryland Commuter Bus and MobilityLink services are canceled Wednesday. LocalLink and Metro SubwayLink are operating.

In Prince George’s County, TheBus and Para-transit services have been terminated for Wednesday.
