Your Travel Options During Summer 2019 Blue + Yellow Line Metrorail Closures

October 11, 2019


We are out here at the
Franconia-Springfield Metro VRE Station to inform
commuters of their travel options during the closure
of the Yellow and Blue lines during the summer of
2019. The closures will take place starting
Memorial Day weekend and lasting through Labor Day
weekend. Travelers can expect significant impact
to their normal routines. During the closure Metro
will be operating free shuttle buses out of
Franconia-Springfield as well as Huntington. In
addition to the bus service that will be provided,
commuters can also consider starting a vanpool, carpool
or teleworking if it is an option from their employer.
If you normal travel on the blue or yellow line, you
know that the trains are often crowded, during this
time passengers who may be taking any of the
alternative options should expect to add significant
time to their travel. We also have options for
employers as well as employees. employers can
reach out to Fairfax County to help establish carpools
or vanpools for their employees and they can help
provide benefits to offset that cost.
