WASHINGTON, D.C. — Metro’s 11th SafeTrack surge begins Monday, and it will bring serious delays to commuters from Northern Virginia who rely on the Orange and Silver line.

Orange and Silver line trains will experience severe service reductions due to continuous single tracking between West Falls Church and East Falls Church from Nov. 28 through Dec. 21.

On weekdays:

  • Orange Line trains will run every 20 minutes between Vienna and New Carrollton.
  • Silver Line trains will run every 20 minutes between Wiehle-Reston East and Largo Town Center
  • Expect crowding on all Orange/Silver line trains.
  • Expect crowding on Blue Line trains between Rosslyn and Stadium-Armory due to reduced capacity on Orange/Silver lines

Due to a severe reduction in service, WMATA recommends that Metro riders who have the ability to do so should consider alternate travel options and avoid traveling during rush hour if possible.
