As part of the investigation into the recent Blue Line derailment near Arlington Cemetery, WMATA will operate Metrorail at reduced service Monday, October 18, 2021. This affects Yellow and Blue line train service in Alexandria, Virginia. Check service schedules here.
Metro is holding out of service all of its Metrorail 7000-series railcars, which is nearly 60% of its rail fleet. Without these railcars, Metro will operate about 40 trains tomorrow – offering a basic service pattern on all lines of trains departing about every 30 minutes. All trains will operate as six-car trains.
Metro continues to work closely with the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission and NTSB and more information develops, we will post it here about service for the remainder of this week.
