Metro has announced that it will increase its service frequency starting Monday, September 11.
According to Metro, there will be more services during peak times on the Red, Blue, Silver, Green, and Yellow lines to meet demand and ridership growth as more customers return to the office and other activities. Trains on those lines will run more frequently from approximately 7 a.m. – 9 a.m., and from approximately 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. Exact times of peak service will vary by station. Orange Line trains will continue operating every 10 minutes all-day, seven days a week, and every 15 minutes after 9:30 p.m.
Metro is working hard to provide frequent, reliable service to help move our region and grow our economy. This service increase is another win for our customers and a testament to Metro staff who have worked hard to restore safe, frequent service. We have great service levels available, and we hope that our region and customers use the system, and we see ridership continue to grow. – Metro General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Randy Clarke
Service frequencies beginning Monday, September 11:
The service increases will add more than six percent more train trips than today, and 60 percent more daily train trips than at this time last year. Additionally, this service change represents Metro delivering 89* percent of budgeted FY24 service levels.
