Metro Daylight Saving Time Change Will Cut Saturday Service Early

WASHINGTON -- It's not quite spring break yet for weekend Metrorail riders.

While weekend track rehabilitation work will be suspended later this month for a few weeks to accomodate an influx of cherry blossom tourists, there's still some pain and delays to deal with in the near term.

In fact, the planned daylight-savings time shift will cut service short by one hour on Saturday night.

In fact, this weekend will be painful for Red Line commuters this weekend. Two stations are closed -- Woodley Park and Cleveland Park -- with shuttle bus service running between the Dupont Circle and Van Ness-UDC stations, where trains from Shady Grove and Glemont, respectively, will terminate service.

Blue and Orange Line trains will share the same track between the Eastern Market and Stadium-Armory stations with trains leaving terminal stations every 24 minutes. Orange Line trains will also share the same track between the East Falls Church and West Falls Church stations.

Blue and Yellow Line trains will share the same track between the Reagan National Airport and Braddock Road stations. Yellow Line service in the District of Columbia will terminate at the Mount Vernon Square station.
