Reminder: Metrorail now closing at midnight Friday and Saturday nights
 
Beginning this Saturday, June 18 until closing, Sunday, July 3, the Orange and Silver Line will be shut down between Eastern Market & Minnesota Ave/Benning Rd. There will also be no Blue Line service between Arlington Cemetery and Rosslyn.

**NOTE** Free shuttle bus service will replace trains from Eastern Market to Minnesota Ave/Benning Rd and will operate every 5-10 minutes. Shuttle buses may be extremely crowded and customers may need to wait for multiple buses due to long lines. Metro riders who have the ability to do so should consider  alternate travel options and avoid traveling during rush hour if possible. All customers traveling through the shutdown zone will tap out and back in on either side of the bus bridge – customers will be charged as a single continuous trip.
