Yellow Line won’t be running to D.C. next two weekends

Yellow Line trains will only be running between Huntington and Ronald Reagan National Airport from Saturday through Monday’s holiday, and will be on that schedule again next Saturday and Sunday.

WMATA says the limited service the next two weekends is due to radio cable installation. Riders can still get to D.C. by Metrorail via the Blue Line, which Yellow Line riders can switch to at National Airport. Metro also says “limited” shuttle bus service will be available from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. between National Airport and L’Enfant Plaza.

Additionally for Presidents Day, Yellow Line trains from Huntington will be running on a Saturday schedule (every 12 minutes). Blue Line trains out of Franconia-Springfield will be running every 20 minutes. Metrobus will also be running on a Saturday schedule, and parking will be free at Metro garages.

Station closed for March weekend

The weekend of March 2-3 will see the entire Yellow Line and Blue Line shut down between National Airport and Huntington (Yellow) and Franconia Springfield (Blue). That shutdown is for track maintenance, according to WMATA.

More information about the service disruptions can be found on Metro’s website.

This story has been updated to correct which stations the Yellow Line will be running between on Presidents Day weekend.
