WASHINGTON — A Red Line shutdown and other major track work will slow all Metro trips during Presidents Day weekend, including the federal holiday Monday.

Other transit systems also run reduced service on Presidents Day or do not run at all.

Red Line

There are no Red Line trains Saturday, Sunday or Monday between Glenmont and Wheaton.

Elsewhere on the Red Line, trains are scheduled to run every 12 to 15 minutes.

Silver, Orange, Blue Lines

The Silver, Orange and Blue Lines are scheduled to run every 24 minutes each.

Silver Line trains will run only between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston.

Orange Line trains are scheduled to single-track between Foggy Bottom and Clarendon.

Blue Line trains are scheduled to single-track between Foggy Bottom and Arlington Cemetery.

Yellow, Green Lines

On Saturday, Green Line trains are scheduled every 28 minutes and Yellow Line trains are scheduled every 24 minutes with a lengthy single-tracking zone between Georgia Avenue-Petworth and Prince George’s Plaza.

Yellow Line trains are only scheduled to run between Huntington and Mt. Vernon Square all weekend rather than Fort Totten.

On Sunday and Monday, a shorter single-tracking zone between Fort Totten and Prince George’s Plaza means Green and Yellow Line trains will be scheduled every 15 minutes.

Presidents Day Monday

On Monday, Metro track work continues.

The rail system will run from 5 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. like a typical Monday, but with weekend service levels.

Parking at Metro garages is free due to the federal holiday and off-peak fares are charged all day.

Metrobus runs on a Saturday supplemental schedule. MetroAccess subscription trips are canceled.

There is no VRE service on Presidents Day. MARC trains run on an “R” schedule on all three lines.

Many regional bus systems run on modified holiday schedules.

Maryland’s MTA Commuter buses, except Route 201, do not run Monday.

PRTC Omniride commuter buses in the Prince William County and Manassas area also do not run Monday, but PRTC’s Metro Direct and Omnilink local buses run on regular schedules.
