METRO SAFE TRACK UPDATE
SafeTrack Surge #5: East Falls Church to Ballston, July 20-31
Reminder: Metrorail now closing at midnight Friday and Saturday nights
 
Beginning at 5:00 a.m. next Wednesday, July 20 until closing, Sunday, July 31, Orange and Silver Line trains will continuously single track between East Falls Church and Ballston.
 
Weekday train service will operate as follows:
 
·         Orange Line trains between Vienna and New Carrollton will operate every 18 minutes.

·         Additional Orange Line trains will operate between Ballston and New Carrollton only

·         Silver Line trains will operate every 18 minutes.

·         At 10:00 p.m. all trains will operate every 20 minutes.

**NOTE** Trains operating from Vienna, through Ballston, weekday mornings may be extremely crowded and customers should expect a delay of more than an hour. Customers arriving at Ballston should consider using the additional train service that originates at Ballston, and will board on the opposite platform from through-train service. This may lengthen your departure time, but give you the best opportunity for space and possibly a seat. Metro riders who have the ability to do so should consider  alternate travel options and avoid traveling during rush hour if possible.
