WASHINGTON, D.C. —  The Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority tweeted this morning that Metrobus will be running on a moderate snow service plan Tuesday morning starting at 7 a.m.

Due to today’s winter storm, Metro had previously said it would operate on a severe service plan.

A moderate service plan means that buses not go on some routes, especially “roads prone to hazardous conditions including neighborhood streets.”  Due to this change, Metro says passengers may experience increased wait times due to road conditions.

Also, on Tuesday morning, WMATA says Metrobuses will be providing services to area schools opening late.

D.C. Streetcar is delaying its service until 8 a.m. due to ice on their overhead wires.
