Everything You Need to Know about the Metro Shutdown

May 30, 2019


Following a series of commute debilitating events, Metro has issued improvements to the Huntinton-Pentagon shuttle route.

The adjusted route will now head directly to Pentagon station form the north and south sides of Huntington Station.

During the first week of the shutdown the express shuttle services both sides of the station causing crowding and confusion.

New separate routes will allow customers to enjoy shorter travel times.

Bus stops have also been adjusted to become more efficient on the north side of Huntington Station.

Metrorail is implementing much needed repairs this summer through it's Platform Improvement project.

And it wouldn't be right if your daily communte wasn't incovenienced just a bit.

Six stations on the blue and yellow lines, past Ronald Reagan National Airport will be out of comission until September 8.

Those stations include Braddock Rd, King St-Old Town, Eisenhower Ave, Huntington, Van Dorn St, Franconia-Springfield, which will receive full platform reconstruction during the shutdown.

To supplement the lack of transportation, Metro will provide free shuttles for all stations that are affected by the construction.
