Weekend Track Work
Metro's spring break is over, and weekend track work is back on.
This weekend, Metro will focus on the eastern end of the Red Line, and free shuttle buses will replace trains between the Rhode Island Avenue and Silver Spring stations. Red Line stations at Takoma, Fort Totten and Brookland will be closed from 10 p.m. on Friday through closing on Sunday, Metro reported on its website.
Free shuttle buses will also replace trains on the Blue Line between the Rosslyn and Pentagon stations this weekend, and the Arlington Cemetery station will be closed throughout the weekend, Metro added.
Seven-day SmarTrip Rail Pass
For customers who use the Metro throughout the week, Metro recently introduced the seven-day SmarTrip rail pass.
"The $47 'Fast Pass' gives customers the ability to take unlimited rail trips for seven consecutive days from first use. Previously, the pass was available only as a paper fare card," Metro reported on its website.
The Fast Pass can be loaded onto a SmarTrip card at a Metrorail station vending machine or online at smartrip.com.
